My first trip to Chateau Montelena was a long time ago. I was still in the Air Force and the Vietnam War had just ended. To this date it still remains one of the most influential wine experiences I have ever had. Quite a few people have tasted their Napa Valley and Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings and they are very good. This Estate bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon is on a whole different level.
It sounds awfully like a contradiction in terms, but Bryan 'Beegee' Williams could well be the last of the great rugby romantics. The great All Black, a man dubbed the Jonah Lomu of his generation, has joined quite possibly the most hallowed pantheon of his sport after being unveiled in the New Year Honours as rugby's latest knight. The now Sir Bryan Williams is the eighth All Black to be so bestowed, and 10th New Zealand rugby man if you throw in coaches Graham Henry and Gordon Tietjens.
OPINION: If Steve Hansen has a Christmas wish-list, it would not have been a surprise to see a particular request up near the top, with the names Waisake Naholo, Matt Todd and Seta Tamanivalu prominent. All three are off contract with NZ Rugby at the end of 2018, and in a perfect world Hansen would love to keep them all around heading into World Cup year. Given as he operates in an environment a long way from a rugby Utopia, the All Blacks coach would probably settle for two out of three.
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".
