Kim Shuck, a native of San Francisco whose work explores her multiethnic roots, has been named the city’s new poet laureate. A descendant of Poles and Cherokees, Shuck is San Francisco’s seventh poet laureate, succeeding Alejandro Murguía. Lawrence Ferlinghetti, co-founder of City Lights Bookstore, was named the city’s first poet laureate in 1998. “Kim’s stirring poetry celebrates the spirit of San Francisco and reflects the open and inclusive values of this city,” Mayor Ed Lee said in a statement.
“Anyone can cook anything and make it delicious.” That’s the encouraging wisdom that Samin Nosrat imparts in her delightful first book, “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking” (Simon & Schuster; $35). And why should we doubt her? In just 15 years, Nosrat went from learning to cook at Berkeley’s Chez Panisse and (now-defunct) Eccolo to teaching the likes of Michael Pollan.
Many had good reason to fear nuclear weapons during the Cold War, an agonizing era of brinksmanship between the United States and the “Evil Empire,” as President Reagan famously called the Soviet Union. But while the world held its collective breath, praying the two superpowers would not engage in a nuclear war, less discussed were actual, near-catastrophic accidents that involved the weapons.
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".
