Two shoppers are trying to make sense of olive oil labels at a Nugget Market in Davis. There’s a large selection of olive oil from top notch local oil to imports better suited for oil lamps. "I’d look for the fancy label first," says David Mattos. "Composed of refined olive oils and virgin olive oils," Mattos reads from the label of one bottle. "So it could be Greek olives, Italian olives," says Boyd. "You’d think pure olive oil would be pretty good," he says. "I’m not sure what extra-virgin is.
As edible patriotism, hot dogs, burgers, corn on the cob and strawberry shortcake should be non-partisan traditions on the Fourth of July. Unfortunately, this celebration seems increasingly to conflict those who try to eat healthy and green. Every bite doesn’t have to be a vote. If ever a holiday menu were built for rebellion, it’s this one. So I’m taking a leap and offering a word in defense of a politically incorrect table this holiday. Every bite doesn’t have to be a vote.
My original cookbook collection doubled when I married a chef. The books occupy floor to ceiling shelves across 11 feet in the living room. An entire shelf is devoted to Chinese books, old, rare and new. Another shelf holds books signed by the authors – Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, Alice Medrich, MFK Fisher, Martin Yan, Paul Bocuse. An interior decorator called the books my wallpaper. Texture. There’s more in the bedrooms and on a shelf in the kitchen, easily more than 1,000. Enough.
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".
