"It's the most technologically advanced cruise ship in the world," the Royal Caribbean sales agent told me over the phone when I booked a trip aboard the Anthem of the Seas, the cruise line's flashy new megaship, reported to be the third-largest cruise vessel ever built.
"It's the most technologically advanced cruise ship in the world," the Royal Caribbean sales agent told me over the phone when I booked a trip aboard the Anthem of the Seas, the cruise line's flashy new megaship, reported to be the third-largest cruise vessel ever built. "It's what we call a 'smartship.'
The voyage of Anthem of the Seas was cut short after sailing through a strong winter storm that produced hurricane-force winds. Here is Brett Michael Dykes's original firsthand account. When he came out for his late-night set in the Royal Theater aboard the Anthem of the Seas on Tuesday night, the comedian Miguel Washington was wearing a bright yellow life vest.
It was around 5 p.m. on Sunday when I began contemplating whether or not I should start composing goodbye messages to the people I love, as well as one to the friend dog-sitting my golden retriever to ask her to find him a good home for me in the event I didn't live to see another day.
4:25 p.m. Line: Chiefs by 6.5 The red-hot Chiefs, winners of nine in a row, can clinch the A.F.C. West with a win and a Denver loss. Otherwise, they will get into the playoffs as a wild card. What has been interesting about their winning streak is that the Chiefs have done it while the opponent has often accumulated more total yards.
1 p.m. Line: Falcons by 4 All sorts of rumors have been swirling around the Saints. There has been talk about Coach Sean Payton and about quarterback Drew Brees being traded or released, and a newspaper columnist even implored the team's embattled owner, Tom Benson, to sell the Saints for the sake of their future.
1 p.m. Line: Bengals by 9 The Bengals have locked up the A.F.C. North and can clinch a first-round playoff bye with a win and a Denver loss to San Diego. The Ravens are coming off a huge upset of their archrival Steelers, so there's a possibility they may still be mired in Huge Game Hangover mode when this one kicks off.
4:25 p.m. Line: Rams by 3.5 Unless the Rams pull out a victory, it will be their fifth straight losing season under Coach Jeff Fisher, who has had only six winning seasons in 21 years as an N.F.L. head coach.
4:25 p.m. Line: Cardinals by 6.5 Whether this is a great game is likely to depend on whether Coach Pete Carroll rests some of his starters with his Seahawks having clinched a playoff berth but being able to do no better than a wild-card spot.
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
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".
