Stealth opening at the end of July for Eric Banh’s latest restaurant, Ba Ba in University Village. The first thing you notice about Ba Bar is its color, a brilliant but not garish turquoise that fits perfectly with the Vietnamese ambience inside. It’s the color of many beachfront houses on Phu Quoc, an island resort in the gulf of Thailand. In the airy back room, three paintings of the Hanoi’s colorful Quang Ba flower market; tile floors, and (again, turquoise) cinder blocks provide a screen.
Ikea, founded in Sweden 75 ago, with its corporate headquarters today located in the Netherlands, is the world's largest furniture retailer; it operates nearly 400 stores in 48 countries and takes in about $40 billion a year. Its furniture is sold flat and boxed; customers can assemble it themselves or hire an Ikea installer to build it. But the big draw at Ikea for a third of the people who pass through its doors isn't furniture at all but food.
Four months ago, Amazon announced it was turning over 25,000 square feet of space in its complex of office buildings north of downtown Seattle to FareStart, a program that trains culinary workers from disadvantaged backgrounds.
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".
