The most conflicted advice in poultry literature is to provide proper ventilation in the coop but without having any drafts. Most sources don’t explain the difference between the two, much less explain how to have one without the other. Let’s change that. Good ventilation removes ammonia and moist air from the coop all year long, as well as hot air in summer.
Any homestead or garden on a sunny site will look even prettier if surrounded by a collar of bright green turf. Here are a few tips to keep your lawn looking good without too much work. Irrigating a lawn is time-consuming, and you probably need the water for marketable crops anyway. If your lawn has been suffering, look for alternative grasses that might be better adapted to your conditions.
It wasn't part of a business plan, but a 33-pound wild edible mushroom growing in the woods on the edge of town six years ago was my first sale to chefs in downtown Durham, N.C. I pocketed $351 in less than three hours. Lion’s mane, an unusually large mushroom, favors winter weather. It was completely covered by a layer of inch-long, white whiskers — hence the name. This one was so high up on an oak tree, that to gather it, I had to stand on top of my eight-foot stepladder.
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".
