Last week the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show took over Las Vegas, and the streets were packed. Rideshare vehicles (Uber and Lyft) set an all-time record at the Las Vegas McCarran International Airport on January 8, 2018, making some 11,465 passenger pickups. Taxicabs added to the record, reporting 18,413 pickups at McCarran for a combined total of 29,878, smashing the record set a year earlier of 28,766.
Hotel privacy is not something most of us give a lot of thought to. We expect privacy in the hotel rooms we pay for, but not, perhaps, in the corridors, public spaces and elevators. “Hotel guests do not have the same right to privacy that they do in their home or even their car,” says Professor Stephen Barth, an attorney and professor at Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston.
Singapore Airlines A380 fleet may be best known for its luxurious accommodations, like the business class seats that become on-board beds. But there's nothing soft about its pilots or crew. After all, Singapore has been operating the A380 since 2007, longer than any other airline. Still, Singapore Airlines pilots are probably more used to the tropics than to the icy blasts of a New York blizzard.
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".
