Maternity photos are a tradition for a reason: Every pregnant woman deserves to have at least one portrait that captures her "I'm growing a baby!" glow. And that's exactly why maternity photographer Keri Vaca has donated her services to thousands of expecting mothers who don't have the funds for a professional shoot.
Ralph Lauren's 17,000-acre family ranch in Ridgway, Colorado is the stuff Architectural Digest is made of: a cozy lodge awash in Ralph Lauren Home pieces, log-lined cabins with handsome fireplaces, a screening room with rows of leather armchairs draped in Pendleton blankets. But Double RL Ranch is about food as well as fashion. The getaway is also a working ranch, responsible for producing some of America's most hard-to-come-by beef.
"My wife thinks I'm a little crazy because of the way I like these things," says Phil Stefani of the heap of white truffles at Bar Cargo, the restaurant he runs with his son, Anthony. The older Stefani, a major player in Chicago food since the '80s, has just returned from a trip to Italy, where he handpicked 2.2 pounds of the lumpy treasures at the Alba White Truffle World Market, a gathering of truffle hunters and traders open for just 19 days a year.
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".
