As a child, trying new cuisine can be intimidating, especially when it doesn’t come with a toy or ketchup. Sometimes the texture is unfamiliar, its color is too green or maybe it just “looks gross.”Student chefs at Uncork and Create’s Around the World Kids Cooking Camp faced this string of troubles last week as they consumed and learned to cook food from five different countries. “I probably would have never tried the cannoli because it looks gross,” said 9-year-old Rachel Lawson.
Very few people can say they saved their best friend’s life — especially at only 13 years old. But Sean Kilpatrick’s quick thinking and first aid skills not only saved his best friend’s life, it also earned him a special Boy Scout honor. Two years ago in August, Sean and his best friend, Joseph Kramer, were on a summer getaway with Sean’s grandmother at the “greenhouse” — a two-story farmhouse the Kilpatrick family owns in Clay County.
In Italy, a cafe is a place to socialize. It’s a place where people drink coffee, meet others with similar interests and talk about ways to better society. This is exactly what Mario Sommella, a native of Naples, Italy, hopes his new gelato shop, Caffe Romeo, will become in Charleston. “My goal is to try to recreate the authentic style [of] life in Italy,” Sommella said.
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".
