Whether you’re lazy, social or looking for a better alcohol selection than your fridge, sometimes you want to go out for a drink. Someone has to hand you that drink, laugh at your jokes and possibly take your car keys. And in Florida, that person is only required to be paid $5.08 an hour plus tips. I set out to see what gets these people out of bed in the afternoon. What drives them to sling our suds? How do they earn our tips? And can I please have my car keys back?
Though he’s traveling from eight time zones away, rapper Qusai Kheder is very familiar with The City Beautiful. “Orlando’s my second home,” said the Saudi Arabia native. “I lived all over Orlando. The west. The east. Downtown.”Kheder, who moved back to his home country in 2005, is returning with a concert at the House of Blues in Disney Springs on Thursday, Aug. 17. In addition to his rap career, Kheder is the host of “Arabs Got Talent,” the version of “America’s Got Talent” for the Arab world.
There was a time when Fleetwood Mac was not a soap opera, when guitarist Peter Green, bassist John McVie and drummer Mick Fleetwood recorded instrument-heavy British blues rock such as “Black Magic Woman” and “Albatross.” But then the keyboardist from Chickenshack, Christine Perfect, married McVie, and then folk rock duo Lindsey Buckingam and Stevie Nicks signed on and Green left and the resulting chaos of affairs and backstabbing is how we get an album as influential as 1977’s “Rumours.” So...
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".
