Writer, editor, broadcast journalist and social media consultant/strategist/dogsbody. If you're here, you probably like Twitter, in which case you really should read my book: A Twitter Year: 365 Days in 140 Characters, available from all good bookshops and in click-throughable ebook form.
Dousing oneself voluntarily with freezing water can surely only be endured (ice-bucket challenge notwithstanding) in a place so luxurious that, between plunges (great for the immune system), there are ample ways to regain warmth and wellbeing. Here, that means a pine-scented sauna, steam bath and 32C pool, plus exfoliating scrubs and masks.
Just 10 minutes' walk from Jaffa Gate in the Old City, the gorgeous 194-room Mamilla Hotel melds old and new: built from the same sandstone as the city itself, it has hi-tech details like a TV in your bathroom mirror and a slick, serene feel.
Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton and Amy Winehouse both attended Sylvia Young. PHOTOS: Getty Petite but formidable, Young started the school in 1981, with the intention that it would be as strong on the academic side as the vocational, and that she would find work for the kids too (there is still an agency downstairs).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
