Gorgeous and dangerous pitcher plants can be found all over the world. They function by eating bugs that fall into their open mouths, which are filled with liters of digestive fluid. The biggest carnivorous plant in the world is a pitcher plant, Nepenthes rajah in Malaysia. Its traps can sometimes reach 40 centimeters in height. This “king of pitcher plants” eats insects like ants, but it's so big that it sometimes eats rats, small birds, lizards, and frogs. Yikes!
In the classic 1995 Robin Williams movie Jumanji, the poisonous and carnivorous plants were (in my humble opinion) the scariest terrors of the film. If you haven't seen it, in the film two kids find and play a magical board game which causes their town to be overtaken by wild animals, plants, and other creatures from the jungle until they can somehow beat the game.
Enter the Philips Somneo Sunrise Wake-up and Sleep Therapy Light, my new savior in the "Will I have time to make coffee before work?" game. (This is a trick—I always make time to make coffee before work, otherwise I would spontaneously combust.) But, I did want to see if waking up to a sunrise light alarm would help me wake up and get out the door sans grogginess.
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".
