If you have been wracking your mind on where your next trip will take you, because it needs to offer the perfect balance between relaxation and off-the-beaten-path adventure, just go ahead and book a flight to Romania. If you just thought of Dracula, you need to set aside whatever expectations you may have and prepare to fall in love with cobblestone streets, medieval architecture, warm hospitality, vibrant city nightlife and a countryside that appears to be lifted straight from history books.
In case you missed it, SpaceX made history on Monday when they launched a 15-story Falcon 9 rocket into orbit to release 11 satellites. That’s not the amazing part though. After the satellites were deployed, Elon Musk’s company then successfully brought the massive piece of technology back to Earth where it landed a mere six miles from where it launched. Even cooler, it landed vertically.
It may be common to see Iron Man zooming around airplanes, dangerously close to the wings and engines, but it isn’t every day you see real people doing it. Jetman Dubai pilots Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet have never shirked from crazy stunts though, which is why they worked with Emirates for three months to make the above formation flight possible. The duo is known to soar via jetpacks over some amazing places, like the Grand Canyon, so it makes sense that they added an A380 aircraft to the mix.
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".
