For years Whole Foods has been criticized, and even mocked as "Whole Paycheck," for its pricey organic offerings, briefly spotlighted by the ridiculous asparagus water incident. Just last year, "America's Healthiest Grocery Store" was still found to be 21 percent more expensive than Trader Joe's after settling lawsuits related to overcharging customers in New York in 2015 and California in 2014.
When looking for the perfect place for a special dinner, the surroundings can be just as important as the food. Our friends at Open Table rounded up the most scenic restaurants in the country, and these 20 locations are just a sampling of the stunning spots that made the list. There are romantic restaurants on mountaintops, overlooking cityscapes and even oceanside coastal eateries where you can get a seafood feast. Make a reservation, and definitely bring your camera.
The Brits are really getting into the holiday spirit this year. Not long after the country boasted a nativity scene crafted entirely from cheese comes this kitschy Christmas sweater that's 100 percent edible. Made over 50 hours by expert baker Juliet Sear, the "ugly Christmas sweater" is decorated with snowflakes, marzipan ric-rac "ribbon," edible silver gems, and a giant Rudolph face.
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".
