PIQ, a gift shop that opened last week at Grand Central Terminal, in a space formerly occupied by Pylones, is, like its predecessor, wildly colorful. But the similarities end there. “The Pylones look was about cuteness, and I was tired of cuteness,” said Frédéric A. Rambaud, a founder of the Sarut Group, which manages Pylones stores in New York (two remain) and an owner of the new PIQ. “There’s a new aspect in retail that’s a mix of day-to-day with designer toys.
“I didn’t really start drinking until I had children,” claims Jill Kargman. While one might expect the creator and star of the Bravo comedy Odd Mom Out to be joking, she’s not. The mother of three, who grew up in New York, and is the author of the New York Times best-selling book, The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund: A Novel, isn’t shy in expressing her booze preferences. “I hate hard alcohol and I hate white wine.”Her go-to is red wine.
Peter Som is rummaging through the freezer in his Chelsea apartment, looking for a container of his homemade chicken stock. It’s buried underneath a pile of other leftovers and ingredients that are each neatly labeled and dated. “This is kale pesto, here’s some carrot buttermilk sauce, strawberry compote, chocolate sauce, shallot oil...”What’s shallot oil? “I was making shallot confit, and the oil is leftover,” he answers.
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".
