Rarely, if ever, have people returned from a trip to boast about the airport hotel they stayed in. For years, airport hotels were to travel lovers what fast-food chains might be to foodies: a convenient option that would only be memorable if something bad occurred. And while, by and large, airport hotels aren’t the most thrilling part of visiting a new city, there has been a genuine movement in the hospitality industry toward changing the perception that they should be avoided at all cost.
Canada's Quebec City is famous for several cultural hotspots ranging from the Château Frontenac and Citadelle of Quebec to the Plains of Abraham and Musée de la civilisation. Yet, it's another famous site that has been receiving much attention this week, and not for the reasons they would've hoped. A fire broke out at Hôtel de Glace, Quebec City's popular ice hotel. The incident occurred earlier this week when a candle set a room's sheets on fire.
For the first time in nearly 50 years, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York will end its pay-as-you-wish admission policy. Since 1970, visitors to the museum were asked, but not required, to pay $25 for entrance. Beginning March 1, that fee will become mandatory for some—specifically non–New York residents.
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".
