“So how long have you been a vegetarian?” is the first question I get when people find out, often in an awkward dinner party setting after I’ve passed on a plate of meatballs. I always say the same thing. “My whole life.”When blank stares ensue, I have a go-to follow-up: “I was a weird kid.”I was a weird kid, definitely. Once I was old enough to connect beef to the creature that goes moo (around age 3?) that was it for me and meat.
We're stoked that Kate Winslet, one of our fave actresses who rose to fame playing Rose in 1997's box-office-busting "Titanic," is making the press rounds for the re-release of the movie in 3-D.And since we're HUGE fans of Kate's style, we couldn't wait to see what she'd wear at the "Titanic 3D" premiere on Tuesday night in London. Now we have our answer (and photos!
Eggnog is great. Or, it’s gross, because it’s brimming (sort of) with raw eggs, but it’s also totally tasty. So, you vegans or ovophobes, what to do? Well, you might want to try making one of these four egg-free eggnog recipes that we dug up from the dusty crevasses of the Internet and tried out. One thing helped universally: Bacardi. We started with the carrot nog because it seemed like it would blend the easiest, and be the prettiest. Oooh:We gave it a sniff. It smelled like pumpkin 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 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".
