Nearly two years after replacing the artificial dyes in its cereals with natural options like tumeric and blueberry juice, General Mills Inc. has learned it's really hard to replace Red Dye No. 40 - both in cereal bowls and Trix lovers' hearts. So the Golden Valley-based food company is switching back - sort of.
People love food, but increasingly that love doesn't translate into cooking. And that's bad news for companies that either make food or sell it. That's the argument put forward by Eddie Yoon in the Harvard Business Review as he compares results from two consumer surveys he conducted on cooking, 15 years apart. One big standout: The number of people who love to cook dropped by one-third, from 15 percent to 10 percent.
Delta Air Lines Inc. is suing the creators of a mystery website called DeltaPetTransit.com, which uses Delta logos and promises to arrange flight services for pets but actually does nothing, the airline says. The Associated Press reports on the lawsuit by Atlanta-based Delta (NYSE: DAL) against DeltaPetTransit.com and its unknown operators. The site was set up through a service that conceals its creators' identities, but Delta says they'll be revealed in the course of of the lawsuit.
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".
