A good blender is a workhorse in our kitchens, they key to satisfying smoothies, smoother-than-smooth soups, and all kinds of rich, velvety sauces. Which begs the question: What's the best blender out there? Well, at the end of the day, the best blender is the one you can afford, whether that's a basic $40 version or a deluxe $450 number. Will a tricked-out, half-a-month's-rent model produce a silkier gazpacho than a bargain unit will? The answer is, well, yeah, it will.
Vegetables, by most accounts, are supposed to make you feel good. Why, then, do they make me feel so awful so quickly, sitting there in the fridge, untouched and wilting? The crisper drawer is meant to preserve produce; in reality, it’s a hospice for my neglected greens. Meanwhile, those clam-shell salad mixes they have at the grocery store barely last a week—sometimes the lettuce browns before I even open it.
LifeThyme Market is an old-school Big Apple staple—and an incubator of the newest (and alternative-est) in natural foods. It’s also one of the 13 must-visit spots in the Healthyish NYC City Guide . We talked to Jason Bander , LifeThyme general manager for over a decade, about what's in, what's out, and what's on the horizon in the world of healthy eats. It’s cheeky, but we say, “We work hard to make it look easy." We try to condition tastes in a way that’s gentle but effective.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
