In the process of planning her new hotel, the Boarding House, Ree Drummond has been thinking back on what she likes to do in hotels, and what she likes to experience when she travels. Appropriately enough for a Food Network star, Drummond says one of the first things she does in a hotel room is check out the mini bar. "When I travel here and there, I like checking into my hotel room and nestling in (and, figuratively, sucking my thumb.)"
White chocolate has gotten a bad rap for far too long. True, it's extremely sweet and tends to lack the complexity of dark and milk chocolate, but white-chocolate loyalists have been arguing for years that white chocolate has the capacity to be complex and toasty — all you have to do is caramelize it. White chocolate's biggest strength is its creamy, milky smoothness.
Pegboards are extremely useful in the kitchen. They're practical for small places and keep everything in sight and easy to reach. And if they're good enough for Julia Child, they're certainly good enough for me. Now IKEA has made pegboards even easier, because their Skådis pegboard system, which debuted in Europe last year, is finally available in the U.S.IKEA's Skådis pegboards come in white and tan, and they come in three sizes: 14.25" by 22", 22" by 22", and 30" by 22".
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".
