Germans aren’t shy about being nude. So why are they so obsessed with their information? As usual, blame history. You can always pick out the foreigners in a German spa: They’re the ones who stay wrapped in their towels, even though local rules plainly state: No Towels, No Shoes, No Bathing Suits. The Germans, by contrast, are comfortable in the buff, and not just in the spa. You can find Germans changing on the beach at the lakeside or keeping tan lines away after work in the park.
About 30 years after brewers brought fresh flavors to America, Germany is finally getting the taste of India pale ales and experimental flavors. Welcome to Beer-lin: Germany’s capital is experiencing a brew boom, with a rising number of breweries, bars, and projects. While brewing newbies have had a big role in this frothy burst, some of Germany’s 1,300 traditional brewers have also drawn encouragement from drinkers’ new thirsts and rolled up their sleeves to experiment.
Germans are proud of much about their modern country, and like to wave its flag during soccer matches. And yet they still have mixed and complex feelings about patriotism, for the past casts a long shadow. It was a small but telling gesture. In 2013, on the night she won re-election as chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel stood on a stage with her fellow Christian Democrats to celebrate.
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".
