Here is the first episode of a new web series I’ve been working on called, The Layovers. The episode takes place in Los Angeles and stars myself and my pal, Johnny Jet. We take the audience on a lighthearted tour of LA from two different perspectives for a short layover and an overnight layover. Have a watch below. We couldn’t have done The Layovers without the generous sponsorship of my amazing partners Allianz Travel Insurance.
I need to redo my 30 best cities in the world list. Hong Kong isn’t near high enough. I had been to Hong Kong 3-4 times but never for more than a day except for 1999 on my first ever trip to Asia. I have obviously changed a lot since then and so has Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a very large, populated city that’s very organized and easy to get around. It has amazing restaurants, world-class bars, architecture, entertainment and sights.
This is the commercial I did called the Road trip to Happiness for BMW. We filmed this over 12 days doing a road trip from India to Nepal to Bhutan. Without question it was one of the most challenging and memorable road trips I’ve ever done-and I’ve done a ton of them! Check out the Road trip to Happiness for BMW plus you can see the original article here! One of the trends in advertising these days is that commercials and ads are no longer just 30 second ads with some celebrity or random actors.
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".
