With the year winding down, it’s time to reflect on the ungodly horrors bestowed to us in 2017. If that sounds unpleasant, perhaps avoid that nightmare and look to the future—a clean slate for at least some things in our lives. One of those things is a vacation, and now is as good of a time as ever to plan the biggest, baddest one to take next year. If anything, putting together a bucket list of trips for 2018 will give you a pleasant distraction from the harshness of reality.
Sometimes moving through Mumbai can feel like that scene in Titanic, when Jack twirls Rose around at that super-lit party downstairs: The world is spinning and spinning and you can’t really focus on anything, but there are lots of colors and you’re very happy. India’s most populous city is more laid back than its capital, Delhi, but it’s in no way slow. It’s a cultural and financial hub blooming with markets and skyscrapers and palm trees. “Mumbai is relentless.
It's more than just "fancy" and "expensive". Dry-aged is one of those buzzy descriptions on restaurant menus that sounds cool, or luxurious, or at the very least interesting, but what does it actually mean? Why do we want to eat meat that’s been sitting around for a hundred days? Does an older age always warrant the often inflated price tag?
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".
