On the other side of the Atlantic, we tend to think of France as a vaguely star-shaped country with Paris as a dot somewhere toward the middle of the top half. Maybe we’re vaguely aware of the regions of France with names that match our favorite wines: Champagne? Bordeaux? Pinot Noir? OK, not that last one. And to make things even more convoluted, France had 22 official overarching regions that were mushed into 13 in 2016 (Langue-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrenees became Occitanie, for example).
When you walk through a hotel with its General Manager, the staff snaps to attention: Surfaces are wiped, pillows are fluffed, postures are straightened, and smiles are widened. GMs are the ringmasters of hotels, spending their careers zeroing-in on and addressing any problems you could possibly encounter on your stay, from the check-in at the front desk to the mint on your pillow at night. But they're also human beings that travel for work and vacation themselves.
Why oh why is the temperature of every airplane cabin set somewhere between meat locker and Arctic Circle? The scientific answer: fuselage + altitude = brrr! Luckily, there’s an easy way to combat the airplane’s built-in chill factor. Just wrap up in one of the ridiculously warm scarves or wraps below. They’re big enough that they can double as airplane blankets, but chic enough that you’ll arrive at the gate in style.
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".
