Who gets the last word? Well, sometimes it’s the bartender. Yes, the men and women who work the taps are capable of discussing any topic. In this case, however, “The Last Word” is a long forgotten cocktail. Apparently forged in the Prohibition era of potent mixers capable of pummeling fiery rotgut gin into submission, the cocktail has recently been resurrected by bartenders with an interest in dusting off and polishing up the past.
Most wines complement a dish. From pasta to steaks to that mound of molten chocolate cake at the end of a meal, it’s possible to fit the perfect bottle. Others suit an occasion — the bleary, bubbly toast at midnight on New Year’s Eve, for instance, or that cheerful sauvignon blanc around a backyard grill on a summer evening. Knowing how to pair toward a plate or an event is fundamental to the enjoyment of a good bottle.
Christmas is coming. And that means …If you finished the sentence with “tamales,” you are aware of one of the great culinary seasonal miracles. Yes, the Mexican staple is available throughout the year. Too often these are haphazard and parched, prepared with little care. Throughout the month of December, however, it is easy to find tamales — really good tamales. What’s the difference? At taquerias that adhere to tradition, nothing.
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".
