In what we're labeling “Culinary Cartography,” Travel Supermarket teamed up with chef and food stylist Rosie Mackean to portray the geography of several European countries using delicious, region-specific foods. Travel Supermarket thought that creating maps of the European gastronomic giants would be a fun way to celebrate the rich culinary tradition that makes each nation so special. Spoiler—they were right.
In developing countries, food security can be a touchstone issue. But so can the way that food is cooked. Live-fire cooking—that is, over an open flame—has an unmistakable flavor and allure. But it can also pose serious health risks. In a report for National Geographic, Michelle Nijhuis notes that around three billion people around the world—over a third of the global population—use open fires as their primary means of cooking.
In yet another example of the Garden State living up to its nickname, New Jersey-based indoor farming startup Bowery is aiming to revolutionize the way we grow our food. The first step? Putting a roof over it. As reported by National Geographic, Bowery is using the latest in agricultural technology to reduce not only the environmental impact of growing your food, but also the time it takes for the produce to reach your dinner table.
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".
