Fall is here and I admit to being a little bit sad about this. It seems like summer has gone like the wind and here we are, left with rainy days and the slow death of summer’s bloom. The saving grace is that it’s now time for all the comfort foods of fall and winter, like this rich and flavorful sausage, potato, and kale soup that my daughter has been begging for. There’s something comforting about being in the kitchen.
There’s just something about a Christmas stocking that doesn’t get old. Maybe it’s the nostalgic memory of childhood when you just couldn’t wait to find out what was making the stocking bulge while still being light enough to dangle from the nail or stocking holder, hung so high. Maybe it was that feeling of knowing that big round bulge near the bottom was an orange, but wondering what other fun little trinkets were inside.
Love it or leave it, eggnog is part of the holidays. Not many enjoy it in my family (they can keep on enjoying homemade hot cocoa) but every time the holiday drink season rolls around at Starbucks I’m ready for eggnog latte season. However, my wallet isn’t so I set out to see just how hard it would be to make the perfect tasting eggnog latte at home. Let’s face it. Sometimes it isn’t so easy to recreate our favorite restaurant recipes but this copycat Starbucks eggnog latte recipe is super easy.
People ask how I keep track of my crazy life. This @plumpaper planner right here. Last year was the first year I invested in a good planner. It took me months to crack it open...like 6 months.
Not this one. I got it today and started filling it up alrea… http://ift.tt/2rxldIDhttps://t.co/pSgGH8QWAI
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".
