Sign up for the MNB Wake Up Call! Wednesday Morning Eye-Opener: This Is Not A Drill ↓ Your Views: A Terrible Way To Go ↓ by Kate McMahonSometimes, a simple statement speaks volumes. I would put Wegmans’ Facebook post featuring its Roasted Butternut Squash with Baby Spinach and Cranberries in that category. I came across the recipe on New Year’s Day while reviewing the reams of Top Ten lists featuring food trends and more.
After George Washington handpicked DC to be the site for the nation’s new capital, French engineer Pierre L’Enfant was commissioned to design the city. In 1791, L’Enfant imagined a “grand avenue” lined with trees and gardens cutting across Downtown DC. His vision became what is now known as the National Mall – the narrow grassy strip that stretches from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol Building, separated in the center by the Washington Monument.

Amazon Makes Moves That Could Help Its Grocery Business ↓ Fast Food Update: Chains Look For Any Advantage ↓ by Kate McMahonWhen I wrote my first MNB New Year Food Trends column in 2011, Pizza Hut was the nation’s largest consumer of kale (for use as a salad bar garnish only – not to eat), Amazon was dipping a toe into the grocery delivery market, sriracha was a novelty condiment and mobile phones were meant for talking.
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".
