People who like food and people who love food are divided not by means or geography, but by decisions. I’ve served shepherd’s pie at a homeless shelter and watched a man with no shoes taste its flavors with his eyes closed. I’ve sat across a table from people with millions of dollars and watched them hastily backhoe ahi tuna into their mouths.
Push your way through doors of Dae Bak Wang Mandoo on any given day, and you’ll find Jimmy Chin in the kitchen, working. Not “working” like punching the clock. Not working like standing at his station. Past that counter, over a cloud of steam, you’ll find Jimmy Chin WORKING. Head down over a cutting board, caked in wheat flour, Jimmy’s kneading dough. Jimmy’s checking broth. Jimmy’s cutting veggies. Jimmy’s making noodles. Concentration creasing his brow, knotting his jaw.
It’s taken me awhile to get to East India Grill. Not because I wasn’t aware of it or because I didn’t think the food was any good. Just the opposite, in fact. Whenever I talk about Federal Way to anyone who’s even slightly familiar with the area, the first thing they say is, “Ooh! Have you been to that Indian buffet off 320th?” I say, “Oh yeah,” and we’d nod our heads while the soft-focus memories of food that won’t let go fills the silence that follows.
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".
