There’s something lurking in the Canal Saint-Martin and it’s only The Earful Tower that has the full story. I’ve spent two months digging into a wild and worrying story about the canal and I want to share it with you. If you’re in Paris, come along to the Point Ephemere bar at 200 Quai de Valmy in the 10th arrondissement from 7pm. Don’t be late! If you miss the start of the show you’ll be very confused. So, what to expect?
Here comes Tal Spiegel, the man with an eye for shoes, pastry, and colour. Listen to his appearance on The Earful Tower below and find his book here. Oh, and here are the pink shoes he was wearing during the interview, followed by his favourite Instagram shot, (followed by eight more we loved).
The Left Bank, or, as the French say, the Rive Gauche. What is it? Where is it? Or who is it? And what’s the live event we’re doing on November 15th? All these questions are answered with the help of four people leading interesting lives on the Left Bank: author John Baxter, Set in Paris’s Abigail de Bruyne, Coutume’s Tom Clark, and of course, tour guide Corey Frye. And a big thanks to the red scooter for making it all possible in one day. Event ticketsÂ are now sold out!
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".
