Forget tiny houses — Starbucks is pushing the trend into the commercial realm, creating micro coffee shops made out of old shipping containers. The concept itself is nothing new for the brand, which made its first shipping container store — coming in at a diminutive 450 square feet, or roughly the size of a two-car garage — back in 2012.
It's a question anyone who's stared at a $3.79 jar of withered plant remains has long debated: Do I really need bay leaves for this recipe? What do they even add to the dish, honestly? What if I just pluck the discarded leaves off my car windshield and throw those in? It's a classic addition in soups, stews, and Mediterranean and Indian dishes, but ultimately, it always feels a little fussy, especially when you have to skim it out before serving your meal.
At this point, Giada De Laurentiis isn't phased when total strangers race up to her, arms outstretched, ready to kiss her cheeks. Or when they tell her that one of her recipes took a couple to the next level (that 'holy matrimony' level). In fact, when she heads to the South Beach Wine & Food Festival each year, it's one of the things she looks forward to most.
Me before any workout: "I just ate, I'll get sick. I can't. My shoes hurt. I'm tired. Don't make me."
Me after: "Maybe I'm a person who exercises! I could be super toned in no time! This is who I am now."
Me the next day: "I just ate, I'll get sick. I can't..."
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".
