Even as we try to keep up with Fashion Week ourselves, it’s fantastically impossible to follow all the new clothes, the editor swaps, and every front-row moment that happens throughout a typical day at the shows — and we mean just one day. That’s why we’re introducing the Hit List, a quick and dirty compendium you can read while rolling out of bed or planning your latest look for Jason Wu’s sure-to-be snowy show, whether you’re watching from the front row or totally insulated in your cubicle.
When the Keepsake martini arrives at your table at Quaintrelle in Portland, a small sprig that resembled both asparagus and seaweed balances precariously on the glass. It’s a sea bean, also known as samphire. Take a bite of the garnish, and you might think you're eating a green bean that got left in some deliciously salty brine.
You can find superior fish tacos nearly anywhere in Baja, Mexico, on the roadside in Todos Santos at Tacos George’s , or downtown at Tacos Rossy in San José del Cabo, where two women across the street press tortillas all day long. But if you want to go all in, the pilgrimage to Ensenada is worth it. In this sleepy fishing village, there are ramshackle stands on most street corners. Locals crowd in among vats of bubbling oil to stand and eat tacos, and you should wander around town and do the same.
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".
