Cooking, like writing, is a means of self-expression. For the past 8 weeks the girls have expressed themselves not only through the preparation and sharing of food, but through the thoughtful comments that they have recorded in their blue books. Today while the students whipped up a few of their favorite dishes - tortellini, soup, tuna patties, they also had time, along with all the bustle and talk to record some final thoughts :“Cooking class means a lot. It’s fun and we get to know new people."
This dish was such a hit with all the children last week, that they couldn't wait to make it for their families. We had an all girl class this week, so there was definitely more chatter and more giggles. And they have learned to multitask because they finished all the prep work as well! We sometimes have children from our previous classes pop in to visit and say hi. One of the biggest compliments was when Avieanna Medina popped in and said: "Guess what I made last week? Stuffed peppers!
For the final meal at the Boys & Girls Club of Camden, the students chose to make the Baked Chicken and Root Vegetables and the Strawberry/Apple Oat Bars. Now that they had been cooking together for 6 weeks, they were very comfortable with the routine and were confident with their chopping skills. Dylan Marrero said, "I loved working with the people here. They were cooperative, and they didn't argue. Everyone had their own job and they did it, but everyone worked together."
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".
