Welcome to spring, A.K.A. wedding season, A.K.A. the wonderful time of the year when you're expected to stand around drinking champagne, then wine, then straight whiskey—with or without canape—for like six hours straight. Can you feel the hangover just thinking about it? Well, I can't. Because, after five years of writing about drinking, I've developed a few tricks to make it through the night—and the next morning—without having to worry about the room spinning.
Because, you know, they're in hotels. Let's say a few words about the old bed and breakfast, shall we? First: has anyone ever enjoyed staying in one? We mean besides repressed 22-year-old newlyweds, and octogenarians on a kinky lost weekend. If you're anywhere between those two demographics, the answer is probably no.
There is not a single better place in the world right now to feed a low-key coffee addiction. You could forgive Kyoto a degree of second city syndrome, if it had it. Kyoto, after all, has a third of the land area of Tokyo, one-sixth its population, and one one-hundredth the number of bright, loud, perfect, ridiculous, flashing things as there are in Japan’s sprawling capital.
@QuinceMountain@BlairBraverman Me, too. I can’t recognize anyone without a context clue—a vocal tick, item of clothing, etc. Even people I think I recognize, I usually second-guess myself out of it. I once ran into my wife at the grocery store, looked directly at her, and kept walking
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".
