As the majority of food commercials clearly show, what we consume is heavily gendered. Marketers exploit specific traits of masculinity and femininity to make food appeal to us: Yogurt and certain types of breakfast cereal are branded as healthy, light and slimming, while energy drinks and Crunch Wrap Supremes are branded as powerful and strengthening. Although they may come across as heavy-handed, these sociocultural influences end up affecting what we choose to eat more than many of us realize.
It may have a meat-and-potatoes reputation, but Polish food provides an array of more exciting, albeit less publicized, flavors. Fresh and smoked seafood is often served in lieu of meat. Pastries are topped with crunchy hazelnuts, plums, candied orange, cherries, raspberries, and sesame seeds. Cutlets are finished with velvety caramelized leeks. And nearly every meal includes a bright green handful of chopped parsley and crisp dill.
@intrnetdaughter ya, but a lot of the free stuff isn't great and a lot of other journalists get pissy at you for accepting free food because the fact that it's free ruins your "objectivity." but in theory, yes
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".
