Pauline Lhote, the director of winemaking for sparkling wine brand Chandon, was born in Champagne, France, so it's only fitting that by the young age of 14, Lhote had decided to become a winemaker—and not just any winemaker. She wanted to make sparkling wine, which is just more interesting, she tells Food & Wine.
Perhaps you live to Instagram your dinner. Or maybe you’ve long had a love of cameras—and pasta. Either way, if you’re toying with the idea of becoming a food photographer, you've come to right place. Sherry Heck, food photographer for Hampton Creek, is here to tell you how to build a portfolio—and what you can do to make your hobby into your next job. 1. Buy a camera with manual controls. If you’re just starting out, you may have a camera that offers only a fixed lens.
We’ve all been there: what we thought was an excellent interview quickly degrades as we sit with the hiring manager in silence–left only to wonder what we have done wrong to encourage our interviewer to stop speaking entirely. (Talk about awkward!) And so, we get it: “The silence in an interview is rough,” says job search and career expert J. T. O’Donnell , and not only because we perceive the hiring manager to be in charge of the interview and flow of the conversation.
@nickolaushines Hey @nickolaushines! Thanks for reading my piece. I'd love to discuss your thoughts on what history should have been included by PM. As for the photo: I'm a freelance writer, and I don't get to choose the photos that run with my work; as a staffer, I'm sure you understand that.

@17thavedesigns Hi Kate! We spoke last fall about branding and customizing your Vivienne theme. I've recently emailed you (via email and site contact form), but I haven't heard back. Are you still willing to work with me on these things? Please let me know! Thanks!
@TSA I was just yelled at by a TSA agent for not removing my iPad from my purse. Meanwhile, on another flight, a TSA agent yelled at me for taking my laptop *out* of my bag. Why is it so difficult to have consistent rules at different airports?
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".
