We’ve come ashore. The Gibbses and the Kittrells, retirees at sea for seven days in October when we used to be working, have stepped again on Florida soil. We’ve been on a Caribbean blues cruise, the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise, to be exact. And to be exact, I’m spoiled. I want music on every cruise. Our ship was full of stars. Our rooms were footsteps away from the main stage and an elevator away from the other ten. We all comingled.
Anchors aweigh! The 2017 fall Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise around the Caribbean aboard Holland America’s luxurious Nieuw Amsterdam has launched from Fort Lauderdale and is on its way to the islands of Curaçao and Aruba on a seven-day, 70-musician extravaganza adventure.
It was a bleak November in Hill Valley, a fictional town invented by a local columnist to begin a short story because he felt the oxymoronic ambiguity juxtaposed in the title would allow him to be open in how he described the town because he as yet did not know what to make of it. Hill Valley was known far and wide for its beautiful campus at the universally known Center for Circumference Studies on the edge of town in Plum Bob Street.
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".
