Tamika Butler is a relative newcomer to bike advocacy. When she became Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition’s executive director in 2014, it was her first role in the field. But her work around infrastructure and equity in L.A. County has made a big impression nationally — a fact highlighted by the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals’ recent announcement that Butler was their 2016 Nonprofit-Sector Professional of the Year.
In a perfect world, guests would arrive when they should, all the food would be ready when you wanted it to be, and no one would require a snack to tide them over until turkey time. But—if you didn’t already know—this isn’t a perfect world. And it doesn’t have to be. Thanksgiving dinner won't unfold exactly the way you planned, but that’s ok. There are workarounds and solutions that can help you in the nick of time.
Thanksgiving fare is, by and large, rich, comforting, and heavy—in a good way. Perhaps that's why the post-feast nap is, at least in many houses, as celebrated as the turkey. But sometimes the flavors can get a bit repetitive, and the heavy food might weigh down your palate. Enter relishes! We all know cranberry sauce, one of the most well-established (and simultaneously one of the most polarizing) staples of the Thanksgiving table.
Today is my birthday. I filed two 1200-word stories and turned around edits on a feature and I am very pleased with myself and now I am going to go drink beer and celebrate getting old(er). https://t.co/uhu0cANe15
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".
