We got a little wacky in the kitchen this weekend. Maybe we were recovering from Friday night's alcohol-fueled bender. Maybe we were bored out of our skulls. In any case, we found ourselves wondering what it would be like if you treated creme eggs like real eggs.The results (evidence of which is in the above video) were disastrous. Take it from Chow Bella and leave your Cadbury creme eggs out of the frying pan this Easter.
Beer appreciation (some might say snobbery) takes a certain amount of dedication. Constant vigilance in trying out new brews, keeping up with trends and happenings, all this and more is more or less required of the avid beer enthusiasts. As such, Zach Fowle, Chow Bella contributor and (putting it mildly) beer lover, spent most of AZ Beer Week in one bar or another.
At what point does one elevate from merely drinking beer to being a full-on beer snob? Answer: when you feel compelled to tell other people what to drink. And the inevitable result of this peculiar ailment is the beer argument. In the spirit of all great beer-related discussions, we present Brewed For Battle; a new series of Chow Bella blog posts that pits a selection of brews from a given style up against each other and lets the taste buds of one layman battle them out. Multiple beers go in.
@tinner10tin Yeah, I have to admit that it took me a while to get into it, but ultimately I really enjoyed the game. Especially considering that @Guerrilla went from FPS with Killzone to their first third-person, open world game. There are nits to pick, but I'm excited about the next game.
The best video game experiences I've had in the last 6 months were the linear sequences that reveal #HorizonZeroDawn's secrets and a DLC chapter for #riseofthetombraider where Lara uncovers mysteries in Croft Manor. Turns out I want intelligent storytelling, not combat.
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".
