Comfort food hugs us from the inside out. Taking in the smells and tastes of a nostalgic food brings simple contentment. It both grounds us in the moment and invites us to recall the pleasures of meals past. When eaten with mindfulness and especially in the company of loved ones, a restoring meal can soothe the winter blues better than a hot bath or glass of wine. For many, Italian-American food is incredibly comforting.
So much more than just decorative fall props, colorful, uniquely shaped winter squash are the vegetal gems of late autumn and winter cuisine. As local greens and tomatoes fade away for the year, brilliant orange-fleshed squash swoop in to bring color to Wisconsin plates. A consistent favorite, with its dramatic pear-like curves, butternut squash is widely available, deeply flavorful and astonishingly nutritious.
No scent represents autumn quite so well as that of a fresh, juicy apple. Its crisp, sweet smell simultaneously calls to mind cool fall air and warm, sun-drenched orchards. October brings bushels of Wisconsin-grown apples to markets and roadside stands and invites weekenders to pick a peck straight from the source at one of several local apple farms.
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".
