Chances are if you’ve inherited a recipe box or family cookbook, you’ll find a handwritten and stained recipe for sugar cream pie. Probably no other dessert conjures up nostalgia in a Hoosier like the rich, creamy dessert. It’s believed the recipe was brought to eastern Indiana around 1810 by North Carolina Quakers, who settled in the Richmond, Winchester, New Castle and Portland areas. Sugar cream pie is the state’s unofficial state pie.
Popcorn ears found in a New Mexico cave date back more than 5,000 years, but we can thank some Hoosiers for giving it the flavor boost we now enjoy. Purdue plant breeders helped pioneer popcorn breeding in the late 1930s and 1940s (just in time for the burgeoning movie industry) and those varieties were used by Orville Redenbacher and others in the industry today. But before Purdue, there was Rev.
In 1935, the Works Progress Administration was formed to provide jobs and steady income to Americans during the Great Depression. Millions working under the WPA banner built public buildings, roads, schools and countless other projects aimed at providing jobs and income while strengthening the American infrastructure. And there was an added benefit: Whatever skills they learned could be applied to sustainable careers.
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".
