Feel like kicking it up this year? Super Bowl gatherings can be more than chili and wieners. Score some extra points with a refined menu. Something easy that a chef might serve when entertaining friends at home even when they’re short on prep time. “Chefs and Company” by Maria Isabella (Page Street Publishing, $35) gives insight into how 75 of the most recognized chefs in America last-minute cook for company. They are stress-free dishes that chefs fall back on to feed those closest to them.
Using a soy sauce-based marinade is an easy way to build umami flavor in fish, that appealing and elusive “fifth flavor” that makes for a richer and more fully rounded taste. Add ginger and garlic to the soy marinade mix, along with a little brown sugar, onion and toasted sesame seeds, and end up with a delicious baked salmon entrée. I like to serve it with rice to capture excess pan juices, along with either cooked baby bok choy, broccoli or Chinese broccoli (gai lan).
I feel so darn good when I eat fresh spinach. Those emerald green leaves elevate my energy level and brighten my mood. When producers started packaging clean petite leaves in cellophane bags a few years ago, I made a vow to eat a generous handful once a week. There are loads of good things in spinach, so I’m not sure which of its many attributes give me such a boost. It could be its abundance of antioxidants (beta carotene and lutein). Or perhaps it’s the folic acid and vitamins (C, K and thiamine).
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".
