Attention Domestic Travelers: The final phase of the REAL ID Act will be rolling out on Jan. 22, 2018. Congress initially passed the REAL ID Act back in 2005 to establish security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses. In order to travel domestically individuals will need to present either a REAL ID or another approved form of identification. A REAL ID is a normal driver’s license that requires a minimum level of security standards prior to license issuance.
When you check into a hotel room, you can usually count on finding many of the conveniences of home, and some of the fun perks, like tiny shampoos. But, for routines that go beyond sleeping and grooming, a hotel room can sometimes fall short. Here are 16 ways to make the most of your stay…Turn your hotel room mug or water glass into a speaker. Just remember to be mindful of your neighbours… and make sure it’s empty.
Let’s face it — window seats are not the most coveted seats on the plane, especially if you’re traveling alone. Working up the courage to ask (and sometimes wake up) one or two strangers to see if you can go to the restroom can be incredibly awkward. Social discomfort isn’t the only thing you have to worry about either. Window seats are notoriously cramped and claustrophobic, leaving many passengers to purchase or earnestly hope for an aisle seat.
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".
