The deal, available from December 5 to the 14, is also around for flights between January 11 and February 14, so if you've used up all of your vacation days, you can start the year knocking off another few.
When the average Thanksgiving dinner plate has, say, seven things on it—a Pollock of potatoes, stuffing, and sauces—it's hard to know what wine pairs best. Sure, you can start by matching with the turkey, but you’ll need a vino that’ll hold its own against all the trimmings, too. With the help of some wine experts and sommeliers, we’ve rounded up seven bottles you'd be proud to put on the Thanksgiving table.
@Uber_Support My husband has sent (yet another) email to your team. Is there a specific case number that he can state so that we do not have to keep re-explaining the same story (and your own policies) over and over again?
@Uber I am having trouble regarding a false cleaning fee that was automatically charged to my account, and I would like to escalate the matter. Customer service is being very unhelpful. Is there another email, a manager I can speak with?
Gotta give props to @united customer service tonight. Had a stressful last-minute flight change and the (shockingly delightful) rep waived my change fee even w/ no status and treated me like an actual human. I'm a Delta gal but that exchange alone was enough to make me reconsider
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".
