All the makings of strawberry shortcake — or of three new delicious desserts to try. It’s almost impossible to beat the lusciousness of strawberry shortcake: a biscuit base topped with mounds of freshly whipped cream and showered with the beloved red berries. In a survey posted on ranker.com (a site which proudly proclaims that it lets people “vote on anything”), 74,000 participants voted strawberries to the No. 1 position in a survey of the most delicious fruits.
Little green men aren’t taking over the world (the food world, that is). Instead, it’s little green fruits. My Facebook news feed has turned green. And not because of the color palette people are using to make even the simplest statements stand out in the clutter of political memes and cat pictures. Nope. It’s turning green because avocados are all the rage in recipes right now. Now, I happen to like avocado.
On Mother’s Day, it’s traditional to bring breakfast in bed to Mom or to take her out for a beautiful, bountiful brunch. Either way, she gets to relax while someone else does the cooking. But what about Father’s Day? It seems that every year, Dad gets to work hard all week and then also make dinner for the family on his special day. Of course, that’s precisely what many men want to do, because they’ve likely been given new grilling toys — sorry, tools — to play with.
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".
