I remember going to school and eagerly anticipating what delicious snack I would find in my lunch box. There is something about an individually wrapped dessert made just for you that made any youngster feel independent. Noisily unwrapping a Ring Ding, Twinkie or Devil Dog before quietly indulging in their sweet, creamy goodness until the bell rang was one of the great joys of elementary school once you grow out of snack time.
There is no greater gift to the people of New York and Long Island than a fluffy, doughy, hot-out-of-the-oven bagel. Pizza is a close second, but any out-of-towners know there is no comparison…it’s in the water folks. So on a Saturday morning when you hit the deli for a dozen bagels, consider these useful tools to make the bagel experience that much more satisfying. Get ready to take on the next great baking challenge: bagels.
Welcome to Downton Abbey. If you find yourself in Hampshire, England, pop over to Highclere Castle, the famed and iconic house that is the setting for Downton Abbey. If you aren’t traveling across the pond, New York City will do nicely, as Downton Abbey: The Exhibition is a fashion and historical mecca for fans of the show. Although the Masterpiece series aired its last episode in 2015, fans have been eager for more Downton.
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".
