As it happens, my first job in publishing was at this very magazine, many years ago, as a fresh-faced and expectant summer intern. I had always wanted to work at a men’s magazine, and I was eager to make an impression. One of the better tasks back then was to assist the editors in picking up and dropping off press cars for review. This was an excellent perk. Who else, I asked my 22-year-old self, gets to drive around in expensive and powerful cars and call it work?
The best place to stay in Cape Town is in an abandoned grain elevator. The Silo, the latest in South Africa’s recent hotel boom, is a stunning concrete-and-glass reimagining of a long-ignored 1921 building, whose massive windows (and rooftop pool bar) frame postcard views of the waterfront and Table Mountain in the distance. It’s a five-star gem, but the best part might be what’s next door.
We can’t stop thinking about the Volvo XC60. Truth be told, that’s mostly because it’s drop-dead gorgeous. In the past couple of years, Volvo has gone to great lengths — with great success — to reinvent itself, shifting its reputation as the nerdy, needy car of college professors and family doctors to something almost, well, sexy. The XC60 is the latest iteration of that new styling direction, and we’re inclined to think it wears it the best.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
