Day two of Food on the Edge coincided with World Mental Health Day, so it was inevitable and correct that so many speakers focused on the challenges of restaurant life and maintaining a work-life balance. The strongest voice on the issue was food writer Kat Kinsman of the website www.ChefsWithIssues.com – who laid out concisely the consequences of not paying attention to mental well being; the website address should be on every kitchen noticeboard.
With a bewildering array of high profile speakers and themes, Food on the Edge was hard to avoid yesterday for anyone on social media. The overall theme for 2017 is Action and Reaction, but speakers on Monday drilled down into most of the issues facing the restaurant and food world in 2017.
The Public Health (Alcohol) Bill is expected to come before the Dáil for debate in the Autumn Session, almost two years since it was introduced. The Bill “aims to reduce alcohol consumption in Ireland to 9.1 litres per person per annum by 2020 and to reduce the harms associated with alcohol,” according to the Bill’s preamble.
@profdwh interesting! I'm a member but haven't bought much from them in recent years. the only Croatian wines I've tried have been a little overpriced - I'd love if we got some good value ones here (especially as it is such a popular holiday destination for Irish people)
@profdwh not found any good value wines from Croatia (Slovenia yes - but there are very few Croatian wines in Ireland anyway), but defo Greece, and Sicily I intended to include by saying 'Southern Italy'
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
