Eight pickup lines that at least give you a shot at wooing any localCongratulations! By being a tourist in town, you’re automatically 75 percent more interesting to the target of your affections. Remember, the local you’re hasn’t just been seeing the same 25-30 people day in and day out all season, they’ve been getting hit on by them, too! Just by answering “Not here” to the question, “Where do you live?”, you’ve got their attention. Now, engage …1. I followed my passions right out of college.
A dime-bag isn’t going to pay the bills. Ski techs like to get paid like the rest of us. But they’re skiers, too, and if you’re in a pinch, they might work with you. Say what you will about the skyrocketing costs associated with the sport of skiing—the barter economy is alive and well in most ski towns.
Everyone knows what they’re supposed to do when they join a group on a chairlift as a single rider: engage in jocular bonhomie with their fellow snowsport enthusiasts. “Great snow today, right guys?” “Boy, it sure is cold out here!”But what if you just don’t have that witty repartee on the tip of your tongue? Maybe you’re a bit hungover; maybe you’re introverted, maybe you just can’t think of anything good to say. It happens to the best of us, and when it does, keep these nine lines handy.
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".
