Although even the most lovingly prepared Thanksgiving feast can be ruined by one intemperate political comment, every aspect of Black Friday can be almost worse than any bread roll bombardment, or sweet Riesling-induced hangover. Such a condition is no way to face the grabby and grumpy throng at the start of shopping season. Besides the fatigue — compounded by residual tryptophan — cleanup is an agony of slow motion. A mountain of greasy dishes are a given.
When someone in the wine industry uses the word “terroir,” they are referring to the sometimes-elusive sense of place — how where the grapes are grown in specific soil defines what’s in the glass. Much of the back-label copy on many wine bottles speaks to this trait: “nestled in the limestone-studded, rolling landscape,” “lovingly produced from venerable, old vines,” etc. However slick the marketing-speak on the bottle, the point is to pay homage to this French word and its precepts.
When a tribute to the classic supper club in downtown Chicago houses the world’s largest selection of American whiskey, people might think something lawless is afoot. But, rest easy: All is above board — or in barrel — at Untitled, a pulsating, speakeasy-inspired hideaway in the upbeat River North neighborhood. Hidden between nondescript office buildings, and an homage to the secretive days of Prohibition, the entry for Untitled almost resembles a false wall in a haunted house.
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".
