During the winter doldrums, how and what we eat seems particularly important — whether to offset holiday excesses, fulfill New Year's resolutions, or find comfort from the cold. Whatever food indulgences we allow between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve, most of us approach January with a little culinary restraint — and maybe ramp up the gym time.A glimpse through thearchives reveals that our food writers past and present have different ways of dealing with dining in January.
At Buddy Guindon’s small market on Galveston’s Pier 19, the Gulf-caught fish on offer was likely caught specifically for the store, often by his own family. If Guindon seems more polished than your average fisherman, chalk it up to his second career on TV—he even shot a reality-show pilot.
Why do we love Gulf seafood? For one, it wasn’t raised on a factory farm. “If people want to eat local, it’s the last wild food in abundance,” says Jim Gossen, chairman of Houston-based Sysco Louisiana Foods. Two, it delivers what so many foods these days cannot: assurance of provenance. And three, it is bracingly fresh and delicious, whether served up in an oyster-thickened gumbo or a rustic Cajun-style boil, an old-fashioned platter of fried shrimp or an elegant plate of blue crab claws.
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".
