Growing up, I remember my mom’s hands always being covered with Band-Aids. I would ask why and she would reply Think of what my hands do in a day . . . I carry things, move things, cook things, open things, pack things, cut things, go through your papers and take care of anything else you need. My hands get paper cuts, knife cuts, burns or simply just dry. Every one of these Band-Aids has meaning. In a typical youthful spirit, her words would roll over me.
Find out about your favorite chefs in our Chef’s Corner column. This month, restaurant writer Dai Huynh interviews chef Joshua Fowler. Tony Vallone has an eye for talent. Decades ago, chefs Mark Cox and Monica Pope were Vallone's protégés, along with Marco Wiles (Dolce Vita, Da Marco and Poscol) and Olivier Ciesielski (L'Olivier). Add to the list 31-year-old Josh Fowler, an Irving, Texas, native recently appointed executive chef of Vallone's.
I elbowed my husband, sitting beside me in the nearly empty press room of Cosmoprof North America in Las Vegas. "Is that him?" I asked, eyeing the style icon. "I can't tell if it's Maxwell. What's happened to his hair?" In 1996 when Maxwell burst onto the R&B scene with his debut album, Urban Hang Suite, music fans were as much fascinated by his silky falsetto as the boisterous bouffant afro curls framing a striking square jaw line.
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".
