You can be anything you want if you put your mind to it — even a human Bloomin’ Onion. Mashable reports that every year on January 1, Outback Steakhouse sponsors the Outback Bowl, a football game that features a giant fried onion mascot. This year, SB contributor Ryan Nanni is making it his mission to become said mascot. In fact, he’s so passionate about the idea he’s been tweeting about it since January 3, 2017. “Hi @outbackbowl how do I get this job next year,” Nanni wrote.
When Hurricane Maria ripped through Puerto Rico, José Andrés quickly became the face of disaster relief efforts. On November 26, the humanitarian-chef announced he’d served over 3 million meals to citizens in need. Andrés will continue to feed Puerto Rico through Christmas with his nonprofit World Central Kitchen — and the same organization is now helping even more people stateside. As violent wildfires continue to displace inhabitants of Southern California, you’ll find Andrés and his team at L.A.
An ice cream shop in New Jersey is under fire for over-sexualizing its logo. Dairy Air — an obvious reference to the buttocks — specializes in desserts doused in smoking liquid nitrogen. The store’s logo features a seductive-looking pink cow in pigtail braids and a beret with a prominent rump branded, “DA” within the confines of a heart. According to Baristanet, the innuendo isn’t sitting well with members of The Creativity Caravan, an art studio in Northern New Jersey.
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".
