Five of America's most iconic hot dog families joined tongs on Wednesdayto celebrate the one link they each have in common: Their founders all emigrated through Ellis Island to America. In honor of National Hot Dog Month, the owners of Nathan’s Famous, Sabrett, Vienna Beef, Hebrew National, and Westchester's own Walter’s Hot Dogs joined together in a Hot Dog Summit outside of the National Museum of Immigration to celebrate the opening of an exhibit that tracks the history of each family's franks.
Between long hours and the various hot or sharp cooking instruments involved, even on a good day, being a chef is one of the most stressful jobs a person can have. But on a client's wedding day? Being a chef practically requires superhuman powers. From navigating hyper-sensitive brides to rescuing sculpted cakes from the summer sun, catering a wedding reception is akin to surviving a 4-hour obstacle course.
When Denise Byrnes decided to open her own bakeshop four years ago, she was so nervous that customers wouldn't show up that she considered building fake cupcakes to keep in the refrigerator case in between orders. But her faux stand-ins never saw the light of day. Since opening its doors, Rockland County bakery Caked Up has quickly cultivated a following among locals, celebrities and professional athletes with its wildly flavored cupcakes and custom designed celebration cakes.
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".
