If you’re anything like us, thinking about packing and dressing for holiday travel gives you just a teensy bit of anxiety. You want to look good, you want to impress your friends and family, and you need to be warm. Oh, and you want to do it all with only a carry-on bag and a dream of homemade holiday treats to get you there.We’ve got great news: It’s not only possible to live your best-dressed, crazy-comfortable dreams… It’s easy.
It’s tricky trying to figure out, as an adult, what to spend when exchanging gifts with a significant other. How do you show you care while also saving up for that trip to Tulum in February, or making sure you can still feed your children and keep a roof over their heads? In a very casual poll, we checked in with some pals and found $250 to be a good “around there” price point for a present (or presents). So! Need some gift ideas under $250 for her?
Consider this a call to arms to all the brothers, best friends, long-time bros, and overly-involved grooms: it’s time to take back the bachelor party. For every boozy-but-basic trip to Vegas, there’s a cooler, more interesting city you guys could be visiting. So the next bachelor party weekend you plan – your own or a pal’s – consider Chicago. It’s centrally located, making it not too far to travel to, no matter where you’re traveling from (in the continental U.S., anyway).
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".
