So, remember how the Coen brothers are working on a film about the 1960s folk scene in Greenwich Village? Well, now that production is getting under way, it's time for everyone's favorite game: Casting Rumors! And the biggest rumor of them all concerns none other than Justin Timberlake, who may be the only man alive capable of bringing sexy back to the folk scene (or bringing it for the first time ever).
"Thirty years ago, I ate an amazing beef dish that had some flavor I couldn’t quite place. It was elusive and licoricey, and it made the food taste extraordinary. I asked the chef, and he told me it was star anise. I’ve since added it to all kinds of beef dishes, and it always gets oohs and aahs.” –Dorie Greenspan, food writer and author of Dorie’s Cookies"I was actually doing a juice cleanse when I came up with this.
Those little spice jars can be pricey, so save your investment by storing them properly—preferably in a cool, dry place. (Hint: Maybe don’t put your spice rack near the sink.) A cupboard or a drawer is best, especially for clear jars. It’s trendy to grind your own spices—and with good reason! Whole spices generally keep longer, and they taste fresher when you grind them yourself. Use an electric coffee grinder, or go old-school with a mortar and pestle. Check your spices before you cook.
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".
