The Egg Bowl fan rivalry between Ole Miss and Mississippi State ain’t always pretty. But a Mississippi State’s fan fundraiser to help Houston flood victims is bringing fans together for a good cause. Becca Crow launched the GoFundMe Thursday with a heartfelt message for fans of Mississippi’s SEC teams:Football season is upon us and we all know how ugly our rivalry is right now. It’s been a ride the last offseason and is sure to get even more intense.
When I asked Southern food expert John T. Edge if he’d be willing to offer up his top bourbon picks for our September issue, he wasn’t feeling it. “I love bourbon. I’m even in a bourbon club here in Oxford,” Edge told me. “But I love rum more and I believe it’s as Southern a spirit as bourbon. I wasn’t dumb enough to turn him down. When John T. speaks, you listen. “Dry and raspy, clean and refreshing aged rum.
Ole Miss alum David Rich launched Rich Grain Distilling Co. in Canton with a plan to eventually unveil the brand’s flagship spirit—the first bourbon ever produced in Mississippi, which debuts in November. We asked him a few questions about his favorite spirit and he delivered. Q: What made you want to open a distillery? A: I knew I was opening a distillery before I knew what the name was going to be. I had a yellow legal pad with a whole page of name ideas and word associations I was playing with.
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".
