Michelle Chow’s baking supply store Vanilla Food Company is out of Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans and she doesn’t know when she’ll get new stock. The world’s supplier of what Chow calls the “Mercedes of all beans” is suffering a shortage. High demand combined with natural disaster created shortages devastating the production process. Growers and pickers of vanilla beans in the east African island country were left scrambling to get crops back on track.
In her Tetlit Gwich’in heritage (North West Territories First Nation) women hold the important role of “water carriers”— protectors of the life source. And when she’s surfing, Rudski feels that connection most deeply. “When you’re in the water, you realize that water is part of all of us,” she says. “We’re all responsible for the land and water, but it’s especially women who have this special role.” The sport of surfing, the 33-year-old Rudski has found, remains dominated by men.
Sarno, considered a hero by thousands of patients and readers he never met, died June 22 from cardiac failure , a day before his 94th birthday. Nothing showed up on X-rays, bone scans, MRIs. I tried chiropractic adjustments, deep tissue massage, hot yoga, acupuncture, shiatsu and some more eccentric treatments including one where a woman gently prodded “pressure points” on my body and insisted I’d feel better in a week. I was a 19-year-old with chronic back pain and no one knew what to do.
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".
