With over 60 wine regions to choose from, Australia makes it very hard to narrow down options for oenophiles. Especially if you’re on a tight schedule. The country’s varying terroirs and climates means some regions make a better Chardonnay, while others make a better Shiraz. But generally speaking, each area is about as good as the next. Our advice? Select the region that’s closest to the city you’re heading to, and venture from there.
Every Sunday, we live vicariously through Anthony Bourdain 's globe-hopping, face-stuffing adventures on CNN's Parts Unknown. This week, he takes us to Seattle —a city known for its foodie culture, booming tech industry, and unusually high number of serial killers (this last point comes up a lot) . “Seattle has always been a place where you can go to reinvent yourself," says Bourdain.
When the average Thanksgiving dinner plate has, say, seven things on it—a Pollock of potatoes, stuffing, and sauces—it's hard to know what wine pairs best. Sure, you can start by matching with the turkey, but you’ll need a vino that’ll hold its own against all the trimmings, too. With the help of some wine experts and sommeliers, we’ve rounded up seven bottles you'd be proud to put on the Thanksgiving table.
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".
