More often than not, when going out for dinner, the wine list will end up in front of me. I don’t mind, but when dining with friends, I know they would be just as capable as I for choosing a wine to appease everyone. Having said that, it could be a bit daunting. Rarely does everyone at the table have the same meal, so, in reality, it will have to be a compromise.
The Niagara Folk Arts Festival ended on a high note Sunday with the grand re-opening of Robertson Hall, also known as the “Robby.”Organizers are extremely pleased with the festival that spans 23 days with open houses and events across Niagara. Niagara Folk Arts executive director Jeff Burch said it was a great season. “Last year we saw a big spike at our open houses and another little jump this year. “Things are heading in the right direction.
With a visit to Caroline Cellars Family Estate Winery, you immediately see how important family is. More than just a winery, it is located outside Virgil in Niagara-on-the-Lake and is a prime stop for lunch it would seem. On a Wednesday, the restaurant was busy and more people were coming in for lunch or a tasting at the wine bar. Nothing fancy, but obviously a lot of people really like it. It’s that philosophy that Justine Lakeit says is the backbone of the business.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
