Choose a Christmas tree you can afford, then spruce it upI went to a diner with a friend last Sunday morning. As we parked, I noticed a large truck pull into the empty lot next door. We left the diner an hour or so later. And when we did, the empty lot next door was no longer empty. It was packed. With Christmas trees. I was impressed by how fast that truck had been unloaded. I was also impressed by the sign. I haven’t bought a Christmas tree in so many years.
White meat has less fat, dark meat more iron and B12Years ago, when my friend Chicklet was ill, I went to her house with two prepared dinners that I’d purchased from Boston Market. As we ate, she looked down at my plate and squinted. “You got all dark meat,” she said, as she sliced into her white. “Yeah, with chicken and, especially, turkey, I only eat dark meat,” I said. “I find white meat to be dry. And it doesn’t have much flavor.”She asked how that worked when I cooked a whole chicken at home.
The first first Thanksgiving, the one the Pilgrims celebrated in 1621, marked a milestone: their first year in America. Milestones have been an important part of Thanksgiving ever since. They can be happy ones: The first Thanksgiving with the new baby. They can be sad ones: The first Thanksgiving without a grandparent. They can be exciting ones, ones that celebrate the beginning of a new chapter or a new era — just like that original Pilgrim Thanksgiving, four centuries ago.
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".
