The gray days were getting to me. I know we need the rain, blah, blah, blah, but the cold, overcast weather had me feeling down last week. So I took to the kitchen. You can't change the weather, but you can change what's for dinner. I've had enough chicken soup but wanted something warm, brothy and nourishing. I settled on a bowl of steamed mussels. The rule of thumb used to be to consume shellfish only during months with anr in them—September to April.
The holidays are over. Any Christmas or New Year's meal leftovers are gone—or should be. What's that smell? Check your fridge. Now comes the cold reality of recovering from any holiday overspending as the bills come due. I've got just the thing for the post-holiday belt-tightening: I call it Three-Meal Chicken. It's really three separate meals made from one humble yet generous bird: roast chicken, chicken tacos and chicken broth. And it will cost you about $20 or less.
Santa Rosa is a resilient city. It's also a Resilient City. In the aftermath of October's devastating fires, the city adopted an ordinance on Oct. 24 aimed at speeding reconstruction in areas impacted by the disaster. The ordinance created a "Resilient City Combining District" that loops Coffey Park, Fountaingrove, Oakmont, Montecito Heights and the Round Barn/Highway 101 corridor into a special building zone with a streamlined permitting process and various "resiliency initiatives."
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".
