Thrill seekers can channel their inner superhero and go flyboarding at Killington Resort in central Vermont’s Green Mountains this summer. The resort debuted the sport on July 1. “It’s like Iron Man from the movies,” said Bruce Morrissey, co-owner/certified instructor at Flyboard of Vermont, which partnered with Killington to provide the service. “You become Tony Stark.”Here’s how it works: Flyboards are strapped to your feet and connected by hose to a nearby jet ski.
Sandy Pines campground in Kennebunkport, Maine, has taken tent camping to a new level by introducing a dozen “glamp tents,” where guests sleep on king-size beds beneath chandeliers. (They can order lobster to their quarters, too.)
Half a dozen hotels across New England are among the best in the world, according to the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine. As part of the magazine’s annual World’s Best Awards, the publication released its list of Top 100 hotels in the world. Four hotels in Massachusetts and two in Vermont made the cut. At No. 15, the top-ranked New England hotel on the list was Twin Farms, an all-inclusive country retreat set on 300 acres in Barnard, Vermont — which also took the No.
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".
