It’s a cool, misty morning above the banks of Japan’s Uji River, when, after weeks spent under cover, they’re ready. Harvesters arrive, woven baskets in tow, and lift the veil. Through a soft filter of early morning light, they sit—precious young tea buds destined for gyokuro. Translating to “jade dew,” this jewel-toned green tea is the most highly prized of all Japanese teas, and once you become acquainted, you’ll quickly understand why. But isn’t all tea the same? Well, yes and no.
As the world’s most popular fruit, bananas have been cultivated around the globe for hundreds of years. Sweet and creamy, banana is the starchy staple that lends distinctive depth to everything from puddings and pies to … cocktails? Shake a cocktail with muddled banana and you end up with a goopy mess, so how can you best transfer the flavor of banana to mixed drinks? Banana liqueur. Mentions of banana brandy date back to the 1850s.
In Italy, la dolce vita is about celebrating and savoring the country’s myriad liquid treasures, and in the northwestern reaches of the famed boot, that daily dictum involves Barolo Chinato. A bittersweet style of aromatized and fortified wine, chinati hail from Italy’s Piedmont region, the area also home to the highly prized (and priced) Barolos.
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".
