I can’t believe that another year has come and is almost gone. I look out the window and know that winter is upon us, and that thought always makes me want to get away to somewhere there is sunshine. I can only take so much of the cold weather, and besides, the sun makes me smile. On March 18, we are holding space on Norwegian Star for a seven-day Mexican Riveria cruise. It will go out of Los Angeles to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.
What could be more fun than a family vacation? I mean a real vacation of a lifetime with the entire family. Well, I just did it. Time moves so fast, and before you know it, the kids are moving away to college, getting married and having children of their own. I thought it would be great to make one last big trip before we were so spread out. With that in mind, 17 of us flew to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and took a Royal Caribbean Cruise on the Allure of the Seas.
Seattle has been lucky enough to be one of two cities chosen to view the amazing Terracotta Army. This collection of terracotta sculptures depicts the armies of Qin She Huang, the first emperor of China. The army was buried with the Emperor in 10 B.C. to protect him in the afterlife.
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".
