The restaurant business is notoriously tough, conventional wisdom holds. Eateries come and go, many with a lifespan that seems only slightly longer than a house fly’s. But you can’t prove that by John Tallichet, president of Specialty Restaurant Corp. The family-run company based in Anaheim operates more than 20 restaurants across several states. That includes Orange Hill in Orange, for generations a favorite spot for couples looking for a romantic, panoramic view of the county.
Yes, I know, you’ve got that automated Rocket Espresso R60V machine all plugged in. Various pressure settings, even a smartphone app. All very impressive. Blah blah. But I’ll be really frank: Speaking as the resident Luddite of this publication, I don’t want that much technology to get my caffeine. I just want a darn cup of coffee. And I want it now. And I want it fast. And I want it good. Enter the ESPRO P7 French press. Yes, French press. Hot water, ground coffee beans, violà. Delicious.
When it comes to having a palate of sophistication and refinement, I … how can I say this … I got gypped.I blame my biological father, because, why not? It’s so much easier than blaming my mother. Here’s the story: He was an Italian citizen, originally from the province of Ancona in central Italy. After a brief stint in the States that included his relationship with my mother, he spent most of his working life in Sao Paulo, Brazil as a civil engineer.
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".
