As travelers, we look for hotels that are more than just a place to drop our bags and sleep off jet lag. Concierges, spa services , even hotel breakfasts can make or break our stay, but there's one thing every traveler wants deep down: a view. A chance to stare off at the ocean comes at a premium. There are safari lodges that bring elephants to your patio, and rooms overlooking quiet courtyards in ancient cities. We know what makes a room with a view . But here's what it takes to actually book one.
Reports around the internet have echoed a potentially troubling story related to Hurricane Irma : that airlines haven't adjusted their pricing in the face of evacuations in Florida, or even worse, have stooped to price gouging. Airlines, however, say that's just not true. Yahoo! Finance told the story of John Lyons, of Connecticut, who bought a plane ticket on Monday for his daughter to fly back from Miami to Hartford, Connecticut for $160.
Never doubt the bankability of Leonardo DiCaprio. When the 2000 film The Beach, starring a young Leo as an American backpacker looking for paradise lost, hit theaters, it might as well have been a promo video for Thai tourism. The promise of untouched beaches prompted hordes to descend on Koh Phi Phi, where the movie was filmed, and anything in its vicinity, particularly nearby Phuket. â€œWhen the movie came out, everyone was looking for that utopia.
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".
