This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Barilla®. The opinions and text are all mine. I absolutely love pasta. I could eat it every day, and sometimes I do. I was thrilled when my go-to pasta brand, Barilla®, reached out and asked me to work on a collaboration to introduce my readers to their new Collezione line of artisanal pastas.
It is easy to completely skip over St. John’s Wood on a trip to London. The neighborhood is mostly residential, and tourists tend to focus on areas of the city packed with museums and historical sights. But! St. John’s Wood is a charming neighborhood where locals hang out and where tourists are only spotted taking photos at the famous Abbey Road intersection. St. John’s Wood is a perfect place to spend a few hours leisurely stroll though parks, visiting pubs, and just wandering around.
Raise your hand if the muffin top is your favorite part of a muffin! Well, I can’t see you, but I can’t be alone here. I tested this recipe for Bakery Style Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins five times before I arrived at a recipe for moist fluffy muffins with a perfectly domed top. I would like to think that it was time well spent. The combination of raspberry and white chocolate was inspired by Merriland Farm, a farm and restaurant in Maine that makes the most incredible muffins.
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".
