In the deep mid-winter on the East Coast as the days grow darker , quieter, and colder, nostalgia for the bright, noisy contrast of summer becomes so acute you can almost taste it. Leave it to Camille Becerra—chef and co-owner of Nolita’s stylish all-day cafe De Maria —to create the perfect culinary antidote in the form of a sunny, California dream-infused olive oil cake. “If it grows together, it goes together,” Becerra quips.
It has been a turbulent couple of weeks for women in the entertainment industry, so it came as little surprise that the focus at the Billboard Women in Music Awards in Los Angeles last night remained solidly on the issue of female empowerment. “We can do anything if we surround ourselves with people who not only love but respect us,” said singer Ciara, who wore a custom Vera Wang white gown to kick off the proceedings.
As the holiday season shifts into full gear and the shopping list for hostess gifts , secret Santa presents, and chic stocking stuffers grows longer by the minute, it’s worth remembering that the most thoughtful offerings are both stylish and serviceable. Something fanciful yet entirely necessary; a gift that elevates an everyday task from the mundane to the slightly thrilling.
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".
