For Nicholas Panagos, the executive chef of L’Andana in Burlington, Turkey Day has always been a grand affair. “My Thanksgivings were always more about quantity than quality,” the chef admits with a laugh. “My mother was one of 13 children, and I grew up going to her parents’ house in Topsfield, where 50-60 family members would gather.” As Panagos tells it, his aunts would bring the birds, at least six in total, along with all the trimmings.
Inside Rockport Music’s Shalin Liu Performance Center, and couples, grandparents, toddlers, and teens sit rapt as a string quartet plays Haydn. Behind the performers, through the floor-to-ceiling windows at the back of the stage, paddleboats glide by and seagulls wheel over the waters of Rockport Harbor. The musical notes ring out loud and clear as the audience basks in the honeyed glow of this stunning American walnut timbered hall.
Surrounded by lush mountains, dotted with noble villas, and ringed with picturesque tiny towns, Italy’s Lake Como, as I discovered on a recent, first visit, lives up to all the hype. The pewter-blue water shimmers by day and glows at night. The air feels fresh and cool. And the shoreline towns are unspoiled, despite the area’s popularity.
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".
