When chef Roy Yamaguchi prepares food, his enthusiasm is palpable. Behind the sushi counter in his newest restaurant, the Asian Market Kitchen on the MSC Seaside, he gently slices hamachi for a plate of sashimi. Carefully, he positions translucent slivers of radish and cucumber around the pink-gray fish. “It’s kind of like modern art,” he says as he squirts a puree of sesame seeds, truffle oil, and soy sauce over the fish. “That’s the great thing about life: everybody has their own expression.
"So, what are people's reactions to your living-abroad stories?" a friend asked, waiting for hilarity to ensue. After spending the past few years living in a hotel in rural Italy, teaching English in a Malaysian fishing village, and interviewing strangers around London, I had more-than-a-few adventure tales up my sleeve. Surely, we both reasoned, the interest of everyone around me should be piqued. It wasn't.
Many of us awoke this morning to worry, fear, and anger. Perhaps you are feeling these today, too. As women who bear hope in our name, we cannot despair. We don't just "like" or "believe in" hope; we live it. We have committed our lives --even our name-- to it.
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".
