Eagle — While many busy young families are looking for quicker and more convenient ways to put meals on the table, Jimmie Frazier and wife Emily Brown are doing the opposite. Their dream is to grow as much of their own food as possible for themselves and their 3-year old twins, Lucius and Oliver. But Frazier already needs to correct the record: “This isn’t a dream, it’s an idea. Dreams are things you know you’re never going to accomplish.
Invite a few of your friends over and let them know they’ll be drinking wine out of brown paper bags. It’s not a tacky proposition — it’s a dinner party for six centered upon a simple blind tasting where guests guess which wine is which. This kind of comparison happens frequently at my house because, as a wine columnist, I always have samples around begging to be tasted. So I pour splashes of this and that — without showing the bottles — to see what people like best.
When winemaker Rob Davis stopped in Milwaukee earlier this summer, one of the things he spoke about was the past, about the more than 40 vintages he has under his belt at Jordan Vineyard & Winery in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. Jordan, a high-end, family-owned winery, produces just two wines: a Russian River Chardonnay and an Alexander Valley Cabernet. And if you’ve appreciated these French-styled beauties over the years, you have Rob Davis, who has been winemaker there since 1976, to thank.
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".
