Gluten-free—the label is showing up all over grocery stores. Sales of gluten-free products now top a billion a year and are growing. But is gluten-free a fad or a true health concern? If you have celiac disease or are gluten intolerant, it is not a fad. Nut flours have long been used as a flour alternative for baking. Fortunately, today there are also many well-known companies providing good-quality, gluten-free, all-purpose flour substitutes.
GadgetGals While guests mingle before dinner, you’ll be considered the hostess with the mostest by serving a few nibbles to take the “edge” off. Or if it is just one blow-out cocktail party for the season, you always want a few new appetizers no one as seen before—and they have to be just... right. Try these: Chocolate-Olive Cookies, or Bacon-Wrapped Mango Chutney and Manchego-Stuffed Dates, or Corn Cakes with Crème Fraiche and Trout Roe… just bites!
GadgetGals Always-favorite mashed potatoes will surely be a returning player on many dinner tables this holiday season. But with a growing number of people into special diets, from diabetic to paleo to vegan, you may want to opt for some other way to “do the mash.” Recipes for Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes, Blue Mashed Rutabaga and Potatoes, Butternut Squash and Cauliflower Mash will suit a variety of tastes and diets, whether you want all potatoes, blended potatoes, or sans potatoes.
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".
