Our team of writers here at She’s On the Go look for certain things in a hotel. We love a hotel that’s close to local landmarks and attractions, is spacious, has friendly and attentive staff, and has amenities that are great for family travel (including your pets), couples, or girlfriends getaways. For those very reasons Modus Hotels is at the top of our list of places to stay when we are traveling to Washington, D.C.!
One of my favorite things to do when traveling and also when I’m home here in New York is to find the best spots to enjoy the evening sunset. There’s just something about the sun setting that ignites my wanderlust spirit. Maybe it’s the vibrant colors spread out over the horizon or maybe it’s the feeling of breathing in the last glow of sunlight; sunsets give me a sense of calm and contentedness but at the same time make me want to explore as much of the world as I can.
Have you ever heard the quote “Some of the best adventures come from life’s unplanned moments”? Well, I can honestly say that this quote rang true for me during my trip to the United Kingdom last month. I had originally planned to visit Edinburgh, Scotland, London, England, and Paris, France and spend about 5 days in each city. The hotels were booked, tours scheduled, lists of restaurants and shopping districts….
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".
