This weekend, the LA Food Fest takes place at the Coliseum in downtown. Among the many A-list eateries strutting their culinary stuff will be the pan-Asian eatery known as Starry Kitchen. Starry Kitchen began back in 2008 when Nguyen Tran and his wife launched an underground restaurant in their North Hollywood apartment. Dishes like crispy fried tofu balls and Singaporean chile crab were a phenomenal success, and for a while Starry Kitchen was the top-rated Asian fusion joint on Yelp.
It's a classic scenario that's been portrayed countless times on the big screen: A significant life event pushes a rooted New Yorker to move across the country to sunny Los Angeles, often chasing a flighty career. For comedian Demetri Martin, art imitates life in the movie "Dean," which he wrote, directed and stars in. The film follows a young artist living in New York, grappling with the death of his mother and struggling to finish a book of drawings.
In a twist on a recent trend, Trump supporters on Tuesday night disrupted Democratic U.S. Rep. Lou Correa's town hall meeting in Santa Ana about immigration policies. A fight broke out a few minutes into the event, and organizers decided to temporarily stop the event before it resumed. Two women were detained, and another person was arrested for assault. Correa talked to Alex Cohen on Wednesday's Morning Edition about what happened. Here are some highlights from the short talk.
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".
