A hotel revolution has comes to Palm Springs: these are the new rooms we’re buzzing about. It’s tough to believe it’s been eight years since the über-hip Ace Hotel set up shop in the then-sleepy borough of Palm Springs and helped usher in the town’s second act as a SoCal hot spot. But Palm Springs is entering phase two of its modern rejuvenation with a slew of slick new hotels that up the valley’s design game.
Plus two valley wines that value freshness over power. Okay, let’s start with an oversimplified version of the science behind wine. The riper a grape is, the more natural sugars it contains, and those sugars create more alcohol during fermentation. Hot climates—think South Australia—can make very ripe grapes and very alcoholic wines, while cool ones—think Champagne—less so.
The release of Suntory's new lacklustre Toki is not a good sign. Earlier this year, I had a few meals at JC Poirier’s new love letter to all things Québécois, St. Lawrence, and everything was solidly on message: oreilles de crisse, choucroute garnie, tallboys of Labatt 50. Everything that is, until I got to the back of the menu and saw a full page dedicated solely to Japanese whiskies. Wait, what?
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".
