There's a meal kit for everyone now, with options running the gamut from vegan to paleo. Celebrity names are getting behind them, and whether your tastes run to basic, no-frills meals or extensive ingredients and laborious and lengthy prep, there's probably a dinner in a box out there for you. The trouble with most of them? You have to plan far enough ahead to order or be subscribed, wait for the big box to land on your doorstep, then find a place in your fridge for days' worth of ingredients.
You probably know Sophia Loren as the Italian screen siren and fashion icon, but did you also know that she's an accomplished cook with two cookbooks to her name? And then there's that famous quote about spaghetti. Allegedly the bombshell famously once said, "Everything you see I owe to spaghetti." This may or may not be true, but she does make a mean spaghetti and also has some nuggets of kitchen wisdom to share. You might be wondering how I happened to have a conversation with Sophia Loren.
After a year in business, The Fat Lamb is ready for something new. The restaurant, 2011 Grinstead Dr., is a modern, neighborhood spot in the heart of the Highlands with a focus on craft cocktails and "creative cuisine." “We have built a solid staff and have a very consistent dinner service,” said chef/owner Dallas McGarity. So what's next? With a focus on the business lunch crowd, McGarity said diners can get in and out in under an hour.
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".
