At The Manual, we care deeply about supporting small, local family farms. Not only are you putting money back into the community and committing to a more sustainable way of eating, the meat simply tastes better. Now, one of our favorite ways to celebrate heritage pork and whole animal butchery is back — Cochon555 is rolling into a city near you. If you’re not familiar with Cochon555, it’s basically the best pork-lovers event to sweep the nation.
Sometimes, these opening paragraphs are tough. What we mean is that we really want to just write the word “bacon” over and over in a very large font, as we’re fairly certain that’s all you need to keep reading (the word does play a prominent role in our podcast, after all). If you want to up your bacon game, though, you need to look beyond the stuff you can get in your regular old supermarket.
Great barbecue comes in all shapes and sizes. Just take a look around the world — it seems that each culture has its own form of barbecue that’s close to people’s hearts, whether its American backyard or a Brazilian churrascaria. The best part about eating barbecue in this country is how much the sauce and technique changes from region to region. When you add in the melting pot of different cultures and traditions from abroad, you suddenly have one of the most interesting cuisines in the world.
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".
