If you subscribe to a CSA box, or better yet, have your own vegetable garden, you may be having a hard time keeping up with the bounty of Sonoma County right now. Are your crisper drawers full of carrots and beets, summer squash and zucchini? Have the vegetables started taking up more real estate in the fridge, crowding out the milk and the cheese? And has the bottom of your crisper drawer turned swampy because you can’t see well enough to clean it out?
How about them apples? Do you have too many apples and crave some sweet, crisp apple juice? Then head on over to the Sebastopol Community Apple Press, which launches for the season from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 5 and 6 at the Luther Burbank Gold Ridge Experimental Farm. Operated by Slow Food Russian River, the press is a free community service that allows the public to select a date to reserve time on the press. Bring your apples (no more than 100 pounds per session) and plastic containers.
When he was growing up in Tehran, Nas Salamati of Santa Rosa used to watch his grandmother cook the classic dishes of Persia, aromatic with spices such as saffron and coriander, cardamom and turmeric. “She made some very complex, tasty dishes,” said Salamati, 52, who now runs Goguette Bakery in Santa Rosa with help from his wife, nutritionist Nagine Shariat, and their 11-year-old daughter, Soraya.
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".
