Over 1,200 people lined up to enter the Longhorn Ballroom last night for Meat Fight. The iconic Dallas building was built by O.L. Nelms in 1950. Anybody out there remember the signs around Dallas that read: “Thanks to All of You for Helping O.L. Nelms Make Another Million!”? They were everywhere. I was about eight and I remember thinking one day I would do the same thing. I guess I can cross that off my bucket list. Sorry, I got lost in history.
Several years ago, somebody told me that if you have an aversion to a specific food, you have to eat it 11 times before your palate accepts it. I despised mushrooms at the time and the fact that there was a food out there that I wholeheartedly disliked really bothered me. Love was certainly out of the picture—or so I thought. I just wanted to learn to tolerate the fungus. I had no idea if this logic was backed by science, but I made it my mission to find out.
For many of us, sneaking at least a spoonful of raw dough before they went in the oven was just a part of being a kid. I don’t even remember noticing the “Do Not Eat Raw” warning on the packaging until I started college. Even now, I sometimes still take it as just a suggestion, but the worry of getting sick from eating raw eggs is real. I was excited to hear that a new edible cookie dough company, The Dough Dough, was coming to Dallas.
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".
