This month, La Jolla Playhouse stages Bekah Brunstetter’s The Cake, which follows a gay woman who returns to her Southern hometown to plan her wedding, only to have the local baker—a close family friend—balk at baking a cake for two brides. The subject couldn’t be more timely, considering the highly publicized Supreme Court case Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which as of press time was awaiting a decision.
The brand-new Four Seasons O‘ahu at Ko Olina opened in 2017 after a $250 million overhaul. The property has 370 rooms and suites, panoramic ocean views, and a white, airy design with colorful work by local artists, surrounded by tropical landscapes, waterfalls, and koi ponds. The service is impeccable and immediate. Even the sunscreen is five-star (they have Sun Bum on tap at all the pools). Room rates start at $625 per night. Right next door stands Aulani.
With fresh interiors, updated appliances, and a renovated kitchen, this gorgeous house by the sea is primed to entertain. And of course, there is no better time to host large gatherings of family and friends than the holidays. This was what the owner envisioned when she bought the house from its original owner, local architect Larry Pappas, in summer 2016. She is first to admit the home already had great bones and is quick to give credit where it’s due.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
