Big changes are coming to the way you order your fast food Boston and around the country. When you walk into the McDonald’s on the Lynnway in Lynn, Massachusetts, the first thing you notice is there isn’t a person behind the counter smiling and saying, “Welcome to McDonald’s may I take your order?”The fast food franchise now offers kiosk service where customers place their order on a touchscreen, kind of like a “super-sized” iPad.
The sounds and smells of sizzling steak are what Rio Brazilian Steakhouse in Plymouth, Massachusetts, is known for. But a year ago, the owners of the churrascaria decided to dabble in the hottest currency, Bitcoin. “The main reason was to get new customers at the door,” said Vagmar Stoffel, co-owner of Rio Brazilian Steakhouse. Dinner for two of unlimited flank steak, short rib, chicken wings and more costs about .0031187 Bitcoin.
A Massachusetts family is learning the meaning of the "season of giving" after losing its home in a 2-alarm fire only two days before Christmas. "We walked out with the clothes on our back," said Michael Wilson of Lakeville. "That was it." Wilson, his fiancé and their 9-year-old son lost everything in the fire that investigators say was sparked by an electrical issue. "We lost all the Christmas presents, every bit of furniture, all our clothes, everything. Everything," Wilson said.
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".
