First, we should probably define what couscous isn’t. Contrary to its appearance, texture, and taste, couscous is not a type of rice. In fact, it’s actually more closely related to pasta, which might explain why it enjoys some popularity outside of Africa on the island of Sicily. Couscous is made from semolina, the same wheat flour used to make pasta. This is why, despite its rice-like appearance, couscous is actually much fluffier than rice.
Every year, more than 100,000 tons of chewing gum is consumed—though not all of it ends up in the trash. This sticky treat can get wedged in the most inconvenient of places, and it’s not always easy to clean up. While it can be tricky to remove from certain surfaces, it doesn’t mean that all hope is lost. If you need to remove gum from your carpet, you can easily do so in a few simple steps. When it comes to removing gum, there are a few options at your disposal.
It’s one thing to know where it came from, but how does gelato actually differ from conventional ice cream? For starters, gelato is served at a warmer temperature than ice cream. Despite this, it remains colder longer because it has less fat and it’s churned with less air. Ice cream is churned rapidly, which gives it that smooth, creamy texture. It also means that ice cream melts faster. Gelato is churned slowly, so it has only 25% air compared to American ice cream’s 40% to 50%.
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".
