Instagram is a place for travel envy. For the past three hours I have been excitedly scrolling through portraits of the city of Chicago. I’m moments away from finally boarding my delayed flight. These are some of my favorite captures of “Chi-Town” (does anyone actually call it that?) shared on Instagram this week. Note: The Chicago photo captions keep mentioning Spring’s arrival, however, the forecast reports 40 to 50 degrees. Eek! Here’s a photo too cute to leave out.
Calling all food truck, nudist, and mini-pastry chefs, it's time to serve a slice of San Francisco to "reality" television. Top Chef is casting for its 10th season of babelicious host Padma Lakshmi entertaining 2 million viewers by cutting her small sample servings into miniscule ones. Then chewing ... and chewing.What will be different on the show this season? Maybe your debut.
Dave MP is new to San Francisco but it hasn't taken him much time to note the stretch of Mission between Cortland and Cesar Chavez is sadly underrated, especially in the food department. As Bernalwood points out today, Dave MP has pledged to chomp his way through the strip, investig-eating the overlooked restaurants of the outer Mission just along the border of Bernal Heights. For every restaurant he dines at, he will post a review of his meal on Chowhound, the food-lover discussion board.
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".
