- We live in the lightning capital of the country and where there's lightning, there's thunder. That can mean major meltdowns for dogs. That's why a new company hopes to build the calm during the storm at a new South Florida facility. Because the dog-days of summer can be anything but for a dog scared of the wild weather the season brings. The creators of the ZenCrate shows off what they call the first ever "smart" anti-anxiety dog crate.
- There's a saying that the two happiest days of your life are the day you buy a boat and the day you sell it. For many people, owning a boat is either financially out of reach, or just not worth it. If you're in either of these camps, how would you feel about sharing a boat instead? We set sail with a company selling that concept in Tampa Bay. Leo Singleton tells us about SailTime, a boat sharing club for anyone who doesn't want to outright own one.
- Pack those bags and get ready to stay! The Bay Area is at the top when it comes to fun and affordable staycations. The financial website Wallethub puts us at number five in the country. And you can soak up local luxury for less -- just because you live here. From the Sandpearl to the Windham Grand, Opal Sands, and Postcard Inn, we've put together a list of the best deals around the bay.
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".
