A $27 cocktail is strong inducement to reconsider one’s life choices. A $27 cocktail that features the newly-legalized foie gras is even stronger. To be greeted at the restaurant and bar that serves the $27 cocktail with foie gras in it, Pabu, by The Clash’s Spanish Bombs playing on the sound system is — well, let’s just say it feels like gazing upon the archaic torso of Apollo. You must change your life. More on that later. You know about the $27 fois gras cocktail, right?
Hi. Once upon a time, I was an editor at San Francisco magazine. Then, I left. Then, I came back. Hi! Or hi again, I guess. For the next few months, I’ll be filling in at sanfranmag.com. Because I felt happy and nostalgic, and had a free minute, I went through our print archives to find some of the many great (and award-winning) stories that the magazine has published in the five years since I started working here. (Jesus Christ, I’m old.)
SAN FRANCISCO—If political scientists are supposed to help us understand trends in American politics and society, the blindsiding 2016 presidential election was a reminder that their work often can only go so far. So when thousands of the country’s leading political scientists descended on San Francisco over Labor Day weekend for the annual conference of the American Political Science Association, there was some soul-searching to do.
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".
