According to the International Potato Center (and no, I am not making that up), there are more than 4,000 types of potatoes in the Andean highlands of Peru. Goodness knows what they all are. I’ve been in the central market in Lima, and there were maybe a dozen different types of potato, which seemed like plenty to me. But no matter how many potatoes exist, we do love our potatoes, though mostly white and golden and sweet.
I guess it’s time to put aside my long-held notion that, compared with Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach is the well-behaved, family friendly, properly dressed member of the South Bay beach towns. In the same way that El Segundo has become a bit rowdier over the years (Rock & Brews upped the ante when it comes to beer and music! ), Rock & Brews has also given Redondo a sense of rock ’n’ roll abandon.
You really wouldn’t expect a free-standing food stand called The Slaw Dogs Café to serve a sprawling breakfast seven days a week. But then, you also wouldn’t expect it to offer a Thai sausage salad, a Cobb or a classic Caesar. But there they are. And there The Slaw Dogs Café is, on Huntington Drive (Historic Route 66), just around the corner from The Old Spaghetti Factory. As I’ve observed, in the flats of the SG Valley, nothing is quite as you expect it to be.
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".
