I’m sitting outside in a shady spot, cross-legged on a yoga mat. It’s late morning on a Saturday in Miami Beach, and there’s a pleasant, slight breeze in the air. I’m listening to the sounds of the singing bowls, created by our instructor Carolina Russ, a cheerful yoga teacher with bright eyes and an easy smile who is leading a morning Mindfulness Meditation class at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach.
For more than a century, guests have been happily immersing themselves in the good-for-you thermal mineral waters at this historic resort in one of America’s iconic spa towns. The property is home to California’s largest outdoor naturally hot-water-fed pool that stays open until midnight, seasonally. Stay in the Lodge, the restored 1930s Mission Revival building, or in one of the cottages, originally built in the 1940s.
The healing power of hydrotherapy works wonders for both physical and emotional health. Here are the best places to soak, shower, and float. I was wading through icy cold water—willingly—and it felt great. I wasn’t at a spa with soft candles, pleasing scents, and fluffy robes—I was in an old windowless tiled room in a hospital-like setting that was worn-around-the-edges in the tiny, tranquil town of Bad Worishofen.
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".
