Just a few years ago veganism ranked well below communism, sexism, anarchism, alcoholism and satanism as one of the least popular isms in our country. Those who did practice this plant-based lifestyle (no meat, eggs, dairy products or animal-derived ingredients).were laughed at (if two vegans argue, is it still called a beef?) and wholeheartedly dismissed as incurable nutjobs. English animal rights advocate Donald Watson coined the word vegan way back in 1944, and later founded the Vegan Society.
Our restaurants should borrow liberally from the Iberian Peninsula. Winding down weeks of eating and drinking my way through Spain and Portugal, I scrawled out a culinary wish list — things I wanted to see emulated back home. Then I stuffed the long, annotated list into my luggage (along with a stick of cured ham, a large pinch of saffron, a tin of anchovies and a bottle of piri piri hot sauce).
Foraging is not for amateurs or fools — or hipsters who take it to cultish obsession. After all, we’ve had farming for 10,000 years, agricultural advances in the Fertile Crescent putting an end to all that stressful hunting and gathering. It can be charming when a cook uses the land as a grocery store. Foraging wild blackberries for a pie is quite quaint. But blindly plucking mushrooms from the moist earth is only fun and games until a doctor says “rapid organ failure.”There’s a line to be crossed.
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".
