A fresh burger patty sizzles and pops as it hits the hot griddle. It doesn’t take long for the kitchen to be consumed with the mouthwatering smell. As it continues to cook, a man named Thunder flips the patty. Nearing completion, he tops it with a slice of cheese that slowly melts as the burger reaches prime temperature. Thunder pulls it off the grill, adds a variety of toppings (but no lettuce or tomato), and nestles it in a basket next to crinkle cut fries.
Ombre Cake by Stone Bridge Farms | Photo by Photos by HeartGone are the days of a traditional white cake—couples nowadays are opting for custom cakes that express who they are, and bakers are getting more adventurous with their talent and technique. We began noticing all types of cakes featured at weddings, whether they were “naked” cakes or beautiful, colored cakes. Some add a gentle, updated touch to the traditional, and some take a completely out-of-the-box approach.
Soon after Greg Pappas and Pete Graphos introduced gyros (pronounced yee-ros) to Birmingham in the mid-1970s, the pita sandwich became a crowd favorite at the annual Birmingham Greek Festival. Gyros traditionally are filled with a rotisserie-cooked blend of lamb and beef and dabbed with tangy tzatziki sauce. But restaurants around town offer numerous versions of the pita sandwich--and at all hours. Look for platters and other variations, as well.
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".
