"I mean, what's not to love about this little cutie? It's bright blue, it's soft AF, made from bamboo and it successfully carries coffee (win). Granted, it only holds a small coffee but on my route to work, I'm usually on my second cup of the day so I am grateful for the dinky quantity.I must admit, my coffee gained lukewarm status rather quickly, but I am actually very thankful for this as I've never been a big fan of a scalded mouth.
However, on the flip side, it can feel like our time spent travelling has become one big photo shoot driven by social media. Whereas travel was once all about exploration and enjoying the moment, with Instagram it can feel like we are working our way through a photogenic checklist of locations, thinking about nothing but getting the shot. It begs the question: Are you really enjoying the moment if you’re also worrying about taking photos?
Espresso is a drink many of us associate with only the most serious of coffee drinkers. The word "espresso" conjures up images of Italians standing at a bar, sipping the black beverage straight from small, mini mug-like cups. Despite the miniature cup's cutesy size, for some reason, the drink it holds has always been intimidating. But, even if you'd never drink espresso straight, it is a key ingredient in so many of our go-to coffee orders.
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".
