As much as we’d like to dream of spring with the taste of warm weather we’ve had, Wisconsinites are well-tuned to the tricks of Mother Nature and the inevitable burst of freezing temps or March snowflakes — sometimes pushing into April. Ah, well … what can you do? Nothing, except have one more hearty stew up your cook’s sleeve to prepare for friends and family. A lamb stew recipe a friend served years ago seems like the perfect March entrée, rich and tasty, but lighter than beef stew.
What do air plants, marimo moss balls, string gardens, bonsai and indoor herb gardens have in common, besides greenery? All are plants that lend themselves perfectly to tiny homes or apartment living, a popular trend among millennials and older generations as well. Building tiny houses and the movement toward simple living on a smaller scale have been around for more than 20 years but have gained recognition in the last 10 or so.
You’ve probably all seen at least one list of food predictions for 2018. After viewing the list of 140 such predictions from Eater.com, I’d argue that almost anything could be called a trend these days. Chicken, pizza, healthy snacks, indulgent snacks and affordable food are all on that list, but were they ever really out of style?
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".
