Not far from the posh luxury hotels that line the beaches of the Arabian Gulf, downtown Dubai has long been a dusty hot spot whose main attraction was the towering spire of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and the stores that fill the massive mall below it. That’s no longer the case. As cities around the world have beautified their downtown waterfronts to attract residents but also the wallets of tourists Dubai had to go one step further: It had to build one.
It’s hard not to want to make music when you work with Dipha Barus. The popular Indonesian DJ was already set to star in Marriott’s “You Are Here” campaign, filmed in and around the W Bali resort in Seminyak. But then producers of the spot had an idea: Why not have Barus create an original track and film a music video? The result is “Room Key,” a true audible and visual representation of Barus’ talents that have made him a big star in the dance music world.
A close friend recently told me of her trip to Tokyo, during which she got lost outside a train station while looking for a restaurant she wanted to check out with her sister. It’s easy to do in a massive metropolis like Tokyo. Apparently looking unsure of where to go, a random stranger approached her asking whether she needed help. This person didn’t speak the best English, but it didn’t matter.
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".
