Can we settle the debate once and for all—doughnut or donut? “I really can’t,” says Paul R. Mullins, professor and author of Glazed America: A History of the Doughnut. “Donut is much better suited for neon signs, but I think it even predates that. You get the shorter spelling overseas too, so it’s not just an American laziness thing.”Much of the pastry’s history is similar to its spelling: hotly contested and wrapped up in myths that are too far gone to be unraveled.
Whether you like yours dark-red or orange, tangy or peppery, mumbo is what keeps D.C. running. People often say there are two Washingtons—there's Capitol Hill, the seat of power, where decisions made reverberate around the world. And then there's D.C., the thriving culture of the city, where regional food specialties like mumbo sauce are a source of pride for a place in constant flux.
After canvassing the streets of Los Angeles, devouring taco after taco in Watts and Compton, our host Miss Info now turns her attention back to a familiar food icon in her own hometown of NYC: the Jamaican beef patty. For all the rah-rah about pizza and bagels broadcasted to the world, out-of-towners may not realize that the flaky, yellow-tinged meat turnover has infiltrated every facet of NYC life.
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".
