Before you plan and book your 2018 vacations, it’s time to get strategic with your trips. Between national and bank holidays, you can turn just 19 days of your annual leave into a whopping 43 days of vacation and travel and relaxation. To help maximise your time off and get the most out of your holiday, travel company Contiki has figured out exactly which days you should take off in the coming year to ensure you get the most vacation time you can.
Pure Barre first burst onto the fitness scene in 2001, when founder Carrie Rezabek Dorr opened the very first location in an office basement in Birmingham, MI. Nearly eight years later, it became a franchise and the popular workout turned into a nationwide powerhouse with more than 460 studios. Sporteluxe recently caught up with Sami Sweeney, Pure Barre owner out of Seattle, who has grown her love for the brand into six studios, employing 107 passionate individuals. So how does she do it exactly?
You’re out to dinner and the check comes, and you decide to go Dutch. Have you ever noticed that you tend to tip just a little more than your man? Or are your holiday gifts just a tad more altruistic than your brother’s? Turns out, that’s not just by chance. According to a new study from the University of Zurich, published in Nature Human Behaviour, women tend to share money a bit more generously than men. So be proud, because your giving habits are a bit more unselfish!
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".
