CLEVELAND, Ohio - A holiday decorating contest at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is being interpreted by some airport businesses as anti-Christmas. The airport recently launched what it's calling an inaugural Holiday Concessions Decorating contest, with a Winter Wonderland theme. In the contest rules, the airport states: "There should be no reference to any one specific holiday celebration whether religious or secular. Stay within the theme of Winter Wonderland."
By John Horton, Special to The Plain DealerMIAMI BEACH, Florida - Palm trees waved me ahead toward the Julia Tuttle Causeway as I quickly glanced at my beeping GPS watch. Two miles into the Michelob Ultra Miami Beach 13.1 half marathon, my pace looked perfect. A new PR - that's short for "personal record" in runner lingo - seemed certain. The early morning sky burned a brilliant orange as Miami's downtown skyline beckoned across the bay. It was 6:30 a.m. My meltdown began minutes later.
CLEVELAND, Ohio - Not everyone was happy when, back in July 2014, Cleveland received word that it would host the 2016 Republican National Convention. At the time, Ron King was executive director of the convention center in Dallas, one of two final contenders for the GOP gathering. "Dallas was very disappointed that they did not get the RNC," said King, who, at the time, had never been to Cleveland.
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".
