Handcrafted. Sourced from reclaimed timber. Something you’ll pass down to your kids one day. Not usually the words you’d use to describe a wireless speaker. But Riverwood Acoustics hopes to bring a little heritage and craft to your modern, plastic listening habits. Handcrafted from “old growth” wood sourced from a nearby river, the retro-designed Riverwood speakers use reclaimed birch for good reason.
The problem with getting away? You’re probably taking a part of your life with you. And it’s probably the part you’re trying to escape: friends, family, co-workers. You’ll have fun. You’ll learn more about yourself. And maybe you’ll make newer, better friends (or family, or co-workers) in the process. Today, we profile three different tour operators that offer a range of global adventures built for solo travelers. Some offer adventure, some luxury, some mystery.
Maybe it’s a good time to think about next year. You know: When we actually have something to look forward to. Every day. Now in its seventh edition, Photodarium (from the publisher seltmann+söhne) is a tear-off calendar that presents a new instant photo every day. “Just like the one our grandma used to hang in the kitchen,” as they say. On the back of each picture? A short description of the location, photographer and the type of film used. And on the front?
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".
