Choosing a credit card has more variables than an AP calculus exam; APY, annual fees, and rewards programs, just to name a few. It’s hard to know which card suits you best, as everyone’s spending habits vary—and everyone travels differently. When it comes to choosing a credit card for traveling, a few features separate the ones that will, most likely, serve you best. Those include:Some features will matter more to you than others, of course.
For all the joy that comes from traveling, the lead-up can gnaw away at your excitement. Few aspects of planning cause as much stress as money. Even after you've booked your tickets and hotel, you'll still need cash, and banks love to charge you fees; in some cases, you'll pay $5 for the pleasure of using a foreign ATM, plus a three percent foreign exchange fee. If you take out $100 at a time, for example, you'd be paying an eight percent fee before you even buy anything.
The Atlantic hurricane season shows no signs of slowing, with seven hurricanes already on record, and more on the way. Harvey decimated Houston , Irma razed entire Caribbean islands , and while Hurricane Jose likely won't make landfall in the U.S., another, major storm threatens already-battered Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands: Hurricane Maria. As of Monday morning, Maria had sustained winds of 120 miles per hour, making it a Category 3 hurricane .
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".
