Perhaps in this year of escalating horrors, it is appropriate that, just when I thought I had found the world's most aggressive, least fun alarm clocks, another contender, far more unpleasant than its competitors, should appear. It doesn't seem possible. There were alarm clocks on that list that ran away from you beeping, one by wheels and one by air.
In the annals of Instagram viral treats, crazy milkshakes are up there with rainbow bagels and delicately arranged acai bowls. The elaborate milkshakes at Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer in Manhattan inspired block-long lines and social media fever when they were introduced in 2015. They've continued to be incredibly popular. So much so that, according to chef Joe Isidori, the mini-chain now makes 70 to 100 shakes a day. But they're also pretty serious caloric commitment.
The researchers assessed the online marketing strategies of F&B giants such as Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) in Germany and the US (high income), China and Mexico (middle income) and India and the Philippines (low income), and reported finding “concerning” trends given the double burden of malnutrition and obesity in many less wealthy nations.
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".
