How one writer went from weekly sashimi takeout to making kaiseki at home with two master chefs. I thought I had a pretty good understanding of the basics of sushi, until I had a kaiseki dinner at Shuko in New York City. I sat at the counter across from Chef Nick Kim, who co-owns Shuko along with Chef Jimmy Lau. (The two of them met working at Masa, the revered Manhattan sushi temple that's also the most expensive restaurant in America.)
Lang Whitaker breaks down what it's like to play the 19th NBA 2K edition—and what it's like to see your own face in a video game. Each year the game finds a new hook upon which to snare new users. One iteration had a soundtrack curated by Jay-Z; another version had a career mode directed by Spike Lee. This year's game leans heavily on the introduction of Neighborhoods, which ties together game modes and allows for virtual interaction with other people playing the game.
The perfect thing to bring to any party. I had just made a big batch of pimento cheese, as one casually does, so I packed a cup of it into a tupperware container and asked my wife to grab it from the fridge as we loaded up the car. When we arrived in Easthampton, I realized she’d left behind the tupperware and instead brought the remaining giant bowl of pimento cheese.
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".
