AFAR chose a destination at random—by literally spinning a globe—and sent writer Jonathan Gold on a spontaneous journey to Prague. When you are parachuted into a strange city, armed with a working credit card but without guidebooks, an itinerary, or 100 megabytes of Internet research results, it is useful to rehearse the frayed scraps of knowledge that may remain from an expensive liberal arts education. I happened to be in Prague. What did I know about Prague? Next to nothing, it turned out.
Businesses of all kinds have been recycling old corrugated containers (OCC) for decades, driving a 93 percent recovery rate for the ubiquitous cardboard box and saving money on waste disposal, and sometimes even earning extra revenue from OCC sales. Now there’s a new opportunity for food manufacturers and bakeries to elevate their recycling programs for even bigger sustainability and cost benefits.
NEW YORK -- Sam Querrey leans back, slouches in his chair and kicks his legs out -- long legs, at that, part of his 6-foot-6 frame -- and he settles in for an interview Friday night in Media Interview Room 1 at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.If he seems relaxed, comfortable, at ease, well, it's because he is.Maybe more so than at any point in his career.The player who was once labeled The Next Great American Tennis Player, perhaps prematurely, is in...
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".
