PICTON, PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY—The pink neon Peace Love Wine sign is always on at the June Motel, where Wine O’Clock is more a state of mind than a time of day. “Wine O’Clock is all the time for us,” says Sarah Sklash, a former government business analyst who left Toronto to become a “motelier” in Prince Edward County with longtime bestie and business partner, April Brown. Sklash pops the cork on a bottle of sparking rose made in “the County,” as P.E.C.
DUCK KEY, FLA.-When meeting a dolphin, it’s polite to shake hands. It’s the least you can do after having coffee with them in the morning. The Dolphin Connection at Hawks Cay Resort has a trainer-guided dockside program for guests to get to know its five resident male Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. Ranging in age, from 12-year-old Tatum to 43-year-old Lucky, they were born there or are rescue animals.
This kind of fishing is a long way from my earliest attempts; perched on an upturned bucket on a dock near my Nana’s house on the St. Clair River, the hook on my hardware-store rod baited by my patient dad. The half-day, deep-sea fishing expedition set out early from Hawks Cay Resort ’s marina at Duck Key, about halfway down the string of coral islands trailing 250 kilometres south along U.S. Route 1 from Miami to Key West , Fla.
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".
