The world is a wild and wonderful place, filled with millions of different species most of us have never even heard of. Growing up feeling like a bit of an odd bird myself, I’ve always been fascinated by unusual animals and insects. The duck-billed Platypus was an early childhood favorite. Getting to see freaky fauna such as the Baird’s Tapir, Bushbaby, Flightless Cormorant, and Hoatzin in the wild has been one of our favorite parts of traveling together.
What is aquaponics? In recent years it has proven to be one of the most rapidly growing trends among those who want to grow the food we consume more sustainably. To state the obvious, aquaponics centers around water. The ten-cent explanation is that fish are raised in the water, and plants are then grown using the nutrients (fishy toilet business) from that water.
A low-sugar variation on the classic Joy Of Cooking recipe four bourbon balls, I’ve made these delicious (and potent) treats every Christmas for the past 4 or 5 years and they’ve always been a big hit with family and friends. Unlike a lot of holiday treats, they require no baking whatsoever and actually get better if you let them age a few days before eating. We like to mix in Splenda, but if you don’t mind extra sweetness you can add a 1/2 cup powdered sugar and nix the fake stuff.
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".
