Camping is on the agenda for many West Michigan families. Grabbing the right gear and snacks can add up, unless you make your first stop ALDI. You thought ALDI only had food? Not at all! A section of the store known as ALDI Finds offers some fun surprises that are in stores for just a limited time. This week we are featuring some things for the great outdoors. This also includes food, one of the best things about going on adventure. ALDI has you covered with their SimplyNature products.
As soon as word gets around FOX 17 that Chef Len with American Char is going to be at the station, they flock from every corner of the building to get a taste of his fresh-from-the-smoker beef brisket, pulled pork, ribs or chicken. Not to mention, his made-from-scratch sides he brings along such as potato salad, mac 'n cheese, or Spicy Slaw just to name a few. As if the meat alone isn't savory enough, you can slather it with one of his specialty sauces.
A good handful of us have tried it and failed miserably. You vow that THIS time when you go to the store, you are buying only what's on your list and nothing else. You have a budget and you are sticking to it! We walk out with our arms loaded down and in sticker shock from what we spent. So imagine what it must be like when there are 10 mouths to feed in your home; that's right, 10.
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".
