Among Nashville’s many growing pains as it rapidly attracts new residents is the increasing throng of tourists—or more specifically, where to accommodate those visitors’ weary heads. The scarcity of hotels (and local government’s increasing vigilance over AirBnB) has meant that the options for accommodation have been not only limited, but expensive. As for lodgings for people who are more design-savvy—well, let’s just say pickings were even slimmer.
Unusually for the owner of a rapidly expanding company, Blue Bottle Coffee founder James Freeman isn’t quite certain how many outposts his brand has across the globe (for the record, it’s 34). And yet he puts an inordinate amount of thought into their design. All of the Blue Bottle locations share a certain minimalist vibe, but each retains the personality of its host neighborhood, be it the Brooklyn hipster enclave of Bushwick or the dynamic Roppongi district in Tokyo.
Despite lopsided portrayals in pop culture in past decades, young girls have never lacked female role models when it comes to space. There’s “mother of the Hubble” Nancy Roman, one of the first female executives at NASA, and astronomer Carolyn Shoemaker, who holds the record for the most comet discoveries by an individual. Astronomer Vera Rubin is credited with proving the existence of dark matter, while astrophysicist Sandra Faber was instrumental in the design of the Keck telescopes in Hawaii.
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".
