Five Upstate New York food and beverage producers won national Good Food Awards. Another five producers from New York City also took home top prizes, which were announced during a Friday night ceremony in San Francisco. Of the 2,057 entrants, 279 finalists were chosen, including 10 from Upstate New York and nine other Downstate producers. Of those finalists, 199 companies were awarded. Entries are judged through a blind tasting by more than 250 chefs, journalists and other food experts.
Do you see that liquid stain on the outside of the aforementioned premium cardboard container? That turned out to be meat grease, which was an accurate sign of things to come. The patty, about one centimeter thick, wasn't tough, but it wasn't particularly moist either. The juiciness and much of the flavor came from the fat. I'd estimate the lean-fat ratio is around 75/25 or 80/20. The slivered white onions were warm and soggy, as if they had been cooked in hot water.
19 notable Central New Yorkers and their Google Arts & Culture doppelgangersGoogle Arts & Culture, the smartphone app that allows users to find their fine art doppelgangers from more than 1,200 museums worldwide, has become nothing short of a phenomenon. Celebrities like Kumail Nanjiani, Pete Wentz, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest are among those who shared their funny and sometimes strikingly-similar results. That got us thinking about what portraits some notable Central New Yorkers best resemble.
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".
