Major cruise lines, travel agencies and social media influencers tuned in to Travel Weekly's annual cruise-themed Twitter chat, which was timed to coincide with the kickoff of the CruiseWorld conference. This year, the chat theme was on cruising in the Caribbean.
The name of the wilderness lodge is Camp Denali, and I noted with amusement that the scene at the Denali National Park train depot did resemble a bunch of grown-ups incongruously en route to a kids sleep-away camp. Adults -- dressed in fleece, colorful waterproof jackets and sturdy boots -- dragging bags and suitcases over to rows of school buses, some posing for photos by the wood-frame train station while others trekked to the gift shop to buy Alaskan-wilderness postcards.
This story comes from Lucky Peach #12: The Seashore Issue. For more great stuff like this, subscribe to the magazine! Blood ark clams are covered with damp, dark fuzz not unlike the bristled carpet floor on a Greyhound bus that’s just done its third New York–Boston circuit of the day. They have a thick shell with a deeply recessed, compact cup like that of a Kumamoto oyster, but are ridged like cockles, with undulations that raise into sharpish “teeth” around the shell edges.
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".
