Our Wine of the Week, Kung Fu Girl 2016 Columbia Valley Riesling ($12), is a crowd pleaser. Your thrifty uncle will love the price and even the most annoying wine snob should be impressed with the broad expanse of foods that can be enjoyed with this wine. On first sip, the wine is cool, bright and pure, with engaging mineral qualities: Think wet river rocks.
No matter what you are serving for the upcoming holidays, one way to spice up your meal is with seasonal condiments made at home. The most traditional meal will soar with the addition of, say, spiced raisins or cranberry salsa. Before you get started, check to see that you have the right containers. Anything with a significant amount of vinegar or lemon juice should be stored in glass or porcelain and sealed with a nonmetal lid. Canning jars are, of course, perfect.
Our Wine of the Week, Donelan 2014 Sonoma County Grenache Cuvée Moriah ($50), is a crowd pleaser, which gives it great advantage on your holiday table. It’s robust enough that your cranky uncle won’t criticize you for serving an effete wine but elegant enough that even pinot noir die-hards will be happy. Fruit flavors mirror the season, with pomegranate and cranberry providing a high-toned melody, as cardamom, which is both sweet and astringent, leads a parade of spice.
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".
