"Sun-protective clothing has come a long way (see Mott 50’s of-the-moment avocado print for starters), but few UV-blocking items have reached the St. Tropez chic of Soleil Toujours’s Bardot hat. The bell-shaped straw topper is named for the French actress who is used as shorthand for everything from sunkissed skin to beachy bouffants to hourglass figures, but this style is known more for what it covers up. The hat is made from a tightly-woven textile that blocks 98 percent of UVA and UVB rays."
Luxury travelers who’ve long turned their noses up at the idea of cruising might be tempted to reconsider. Ritz-Carlton has announced its plans to enter the cruise market with the launch of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, a small fleet of custom-built boats that aims to give jetsetters a unique yachting-meets-resort experience. The launch marks the first time a luxury hotel chain has parlayed its brand to the sea, according to the company.
Considering that flight prices to Europe are at an all-time low—and the dollar is stronger than ever—there’s no better time for a bucket list-worthy trip to Lake Como. Though you really can’t go wrong any week of the month, escaping to Europe over the 4th of July holiday has a particular appeal.
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".
