When I was living in Vilnius in the early 2000s, I was a part of a photography club founded by Andy Hernandez and Tomas Kauneckas. We met every Sunday at the Cyclopes studio in Vilnius Old Town to drink coffee (there may have been wine), eat snacks, and talk about photography. Sometimes Tomas would bring a model and set up a backdrop and we’d all take turns shooting her under the lights. It was fun and social and I learned a lot from Tomas, Andy, and the other club members.
Take note, kitchen commandos: There's a power imbalance in the culinary world. The James Beard Awards, known as the Oscars of food, have awarded only 81 of a total of 361 awards to women. However, that number seems to be on the rise with several new women being recognized this year as nominees and award winners.To celebrate, we take a look at some of the best up-and-coming female chefs from LA to London.
Chef Sam Smith takes us behind the scenes of Tusk, named one of Food & Wine's restaurants of the year. A handful of blocks from the east bank of Portland’s Willamette River, tucked in along a semi-residential street, you’ll find a perennially bright spot among the shifting Pacific Northwest clouds. Tusk, named one of Food & Wine magazine’s Restaurants of the Year, serves up locally sourced dishes inspired by the flavors of Israel and the surrounding Mediterranean area.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
