There is a small enclosed garden in the northeast corner of the Forbidden City, Beijing’s 200-acre red-walled, yellow-roofed, built-to-intimidate immensity, where between 1420 and 1911 the emperors of China’s last two dynasties, the Ming and the Qing, lived and ruled. The garden was designed in the 1770s by the fifth Qing emperor, Qianlong, for his pleasure after retirement.
Yes, it’s still fun to eyeball the bling on display around the Casino de Monte-Carlo, and the Hôtel de Paris still feels elegant. But—and this might be the biggest news in Monaco since the arrival in 1956 of that gorgeous blonde from Philadelphia—the new place to see and be seen is the sublime, renovated Monte-Carlo Beach hotel. Regulars and locals rent pool cabanas here and venture “downtown” (where the hoi polloi drive rented Maseratis) only for some shopping or nightlife. What remains the same?
Too touristy? Not if you do it right. In fact, it’s hardly surprising that the Spanish royal family, who own a stunning portfolio of palaces all over Spain, have been spending their summer holidays on Majorca since 1975. With craggy shores punctuated by sandy coves, a dramatic northern spine of the Tramuntana mountain range, and groves of silvery green olive trees and fragrant citrus orchards, the island has been casting its spell for centuries.
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".
