It’s on nearly every one of those “most anticipated books of fall 2017” lists; its style is being compared to Toni Morrison, William Faulkner, The Odyssey, and the Old Testament; and it’s being called an “an essential contribution to American literature”.I’m talking about Sing, Unburied, Sing, our next Social Chapter selection.It’s Jesmyn Ward’s first novel since 2011’s Salvage the Bones.
First of all, I would like to thank “Kayla,” a viewer who wrote to us with the question of all questions: Do you tip on take-out?And not delivery because of course you tip the beautiful person who delivers delicious food right to your door.Kayla is talking about tipping when you order take-out at a restaurant and actually go and pick it up yourself.We posted the question on Facebook and there are nearly 200 responses.Many people wrote in about tipping on delivery, which was not the question.
Yesterday, I got to watch Kyle MacLachlan taste three pies that I baked for him and I still feel like I am in a dream.Many people asked for the recipes and you can scroll to the bottom to find them or you can keep reading because I have a lot to say about pies, some of which is very controversial.Let’s start with why making pies for Kyle MacLachlan was a very moving experience for me. I love Twin Peaks, in which he plays FBI agent Dale Cooper, who loves pie.
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".
