Good news for noodle lovers and/or Miracle Mile workers and denizens aching for better lunch and dinner options–the second ramen location in the ever-expanding Jinya empire debuts in a Wilshire Boulevard strip mall today. The Facebook page promises the same ramen you find at the one in Studio City and at Robata Jinya on West Third Street–both favorites of Jonathan Gold–but with the addition of "exciting new dishes!"
Not too long ago we asked: Is cauliflower over yet? Apparently not. Not only is it more prevalent than it was in years past, it's bigger than ever — literally — showing up in a thick-cut "steak" form that no longer plays second fiddle to the main dish. Cauliflower's innate meatiness is exaggerated when cut across the head, resulting in a slab that's an inch or two thick, which can be roasted or grilled. The cruciferious veg is also beloved by chefs for its versatility.
What a long strange trip it's been, Coachella. The music and art fest happening in Indio over two weekends this month (April 14-16 and 21-23) used to be all about the band lineup, balloons, Ferris Wheels, lit-up palm trees and roving installations. But now eating is as important as what you're grooving to in the field or tents, whether it's a quick slice of Spicy Pie or a sit-down meal from a well-known chef.
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".
