Never mind the aspirin, somebody pass the industrial strength … look, I don’t know. The last time I had a hangover was the LAST time I’ll be hungover. At some point in life, my body said “no mas” to alcohol. But I fondly remember more than one reckless night, and more than one sinfully fattening and toxin-absorbing meal the day after. I don’t necessarily think kindly of the other effects of Ye Olde Hangovers, but they’re not going away anytime soon.
Have I ever even met a ginger I didn’t like? Ginger ale, ginger snaps, crystallized ginger… I probably didn’t love it that much as a kid, but as a really, really old kid these days, I definitely appreciate the versatility of a root that’s as happy in a stir-fry as it is in a cocktail or a cookie. It plays well with sweet but always offers that kick of spice on the back-end to remind you that this is no plaything, but that, with proper culinary supervision, you can, and should, play away.
Sometimes, there’s nothing better than cooking up a storm in the kitchen with your loved ones for a big holiday feast. Other times, you’d just as soon skip the annual Christmas Meat Fight about whether the roast beef is done or not and just order in. Luckily, you have multiple options throughout Music City, so all you’ll have to fight about is who gets the last piece of … pie? Casserole? Lasagna? Spoiler alert: It’s me.
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".
