Winter is not messing around this time. Are you stuck in the house, clinging to all of those earnest new year resolutions surrounded by nothing but gluten-free baker’s chocolate and cheese? Oh, never mind, that’s me. It’s completely normal to indulge during the holiday season and just as natural to listen to your body when it’s telling you, “If you don’t cut it with the GF canolis, I’m going to pop.” One of the best ways to soothe your overworked digestive system is by making soup a meal.
We’ve barely finished doing the Thanksgiving dishes when we seemingly switch gears right into Christmas and Hanukkah. We have less than one month to do more cooking, decorating and a lot of shopping. I know the season has started when the texts and emails start coming, asking me, “What to get my gluten-free friend, relative, spouse, etc.”This tells me that you are a considerate person who understands that some of us have to live a gluten-free life and you want to honor that with a special gift.
Doorbells will be ringing Oct. 31 and costumed children everywhere will want to know if you have either a trick or treat in store for them. If you have a child who lives with life-threatening food allergies, then you know a treat can be hard to come by. There is an organization called FARE working hard to fix that. FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), which formed in 2012, is committed to advocating and providing hope for the nearly 15 million Americans living with food allergies.
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".
