SAN JUAN, PR—Reeling from the one-two punch of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, Puerto Rico is likely facing weeks, if not months, without many essential services as the island nation begins what is expected to be a slow recovery. The majority of the island remains without electricity, impacting telephone service, water supply, food storage, sewers and other areas.
ANAHEIM, CA—Shovels went into dirt on Sept. 13 for the first new-build Westin hotel in Southern California in more than 25 years. The 613-room Westin Anaheim Resort, across the street from the Disneyland Resort and adjacent the expansion of the Anaheim Convention Center, is coming out of the ground via Hong Kong-based Wincome Group, headquartered here. The seven-story, $245 million project is sited on the former location of the Anabella Hotel, which Wincome owned for close to two decades.
ORLANDO, FL—Anyone wondering what happens to all those hardly used guest-bathroom amenities should ask Shawn Seipler, CEO of Clean the World. Almost a decade ago, the then-executive for an e-commerce tech company found himself in a Minneapolis hotel room, looking at his slightly used bar of soap and wondering the same thing.
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".
