Nothing screams, “holiday party” like John Schiltz’s red-and-green polka-dot suit jacket and snowflake tie. Sure, it wasn’t even Thanksgiving yet, but the owner of Lake Elmo Inn and the president-elect of the Minnesota Restaurant Association was a neon announcement that it’s never too early to celebrate the holidays and the association’s 2017 slate of honorees. This year’s event was held at downtown Minneapolis’ Lumber Exchange Event Center.
Soup at Eastside in Minneapolis is healthy eye candy. Andy Warhol was the first to elevate soup to art, but in his case it was the can that was the masterpiece, not what was in it. According to the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in NYC, Warhol meticulously painted 32 identical canvases, varying only by the verbiage on the labels, for a show in 1962, a nod to all 32 varieties of Campbell’s soup. His later Campbell soup art was silkscreened.
A couple of years ago, the name Kim Ly Curry might not ring a dinner bell for many Twin Cities restaurateurs. But now the Instagram foodie sensation is a presence at every table in town. And because a good number of people like interesting food pictures and Instagram is an international platform, her restuarant "reviews" are seen by followers all over the internet.
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".
