The scene was The Hog & The Barrel Dinner at Louisville, Kentucky's Proof on Main in 2012, an annual "feast that celebrates the whole hog," pairing five pig-centric courses with a different Van Winkle whiskey. Yes, as president of the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery, Van Winkle produces the rye he was delighting in. But his tone was sincere, not ironic, similar to that of any other spirit enthusiast lucky enough to taste a Van Winkle bourbon or rye.
Despite Washington, D.C. thrumming at the confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, most visitors limit their waterfront experiences to walking along the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, paddleboating in the Tidal Basin, or reclining by a hotel swimming pool. The Wharf changes that.
If smart guns—which only their owner can fire—are sold anywhere in the United States, New Jersey’s Childproof Handgun Law of 2002 would require all handguns sold in that state to be smart guns within 30 months, according to an NPR segment broadcast yesterday by Joel Rose. Consequently, no U.S. gun shop will carry smart guns as they don’t want New Jersey to ban all other handguns.
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".
