I’ve been talking a lot lately about my childhood memories around food, reminiscing about those dishes I grew up eating. It seems many friends have had similar experiences, growing up with many of the same dishes. One of those was instant ramen or rather Mr. Noodles as most of us knew them. While not from my early childhood, instant ramen becomes a hit during teenage years when you became confident enough to at least boil water.
Though it wasn’t a regular occurrence in my house, I have a feeling we all grew up with taco night. I certainly don’t mean the tacos we are exposed to today, where pulled pork and guacamole are commonplace. Rather, taco night was built upon the most basic of ingredients: ground beef, cheese and the taco kit. I don’t think I’m alone in saying many of us kids looked forward to taco night as if it was some exotic break from our usual goulash or tuna casserole.
There’s not much better to get you through winter than a steaming bowl of soup. And if that soup includes noodles, you’ve got yourself a complete meal to conquer anything winter can throw at you. Here are five noodle soups to warm up to this January. The jury is still out on the best ramen in the city. With several spots offering widely different versions, I could easily write about ramen alone.
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".
