High on the flanks of the Waianae Mountains, the crumbling remains of a dead Hawaiian volcano that overlook Dole pineapple plantations and Pearl Harbor on the west end of O’ahu, is the home of a plant called Phyllostegia kaalaensis. Or at least it was until recently. The homely white flowering plant in the mint family had barely escaped extinction in the refuge of two greenhouses, one owned by the U.S. Army and another by the State of Hawaii -- but now it wasn’t cooperating.
Thanks to remote-controlled traps that took four days to sink to their target on the bottom of the seven-mile deep , scientists have at last captured, formally identified and described the world's deepest-known fish: Pseudoliparis swirei, the Mariana snailfish.

In the backside of certain mayfly nymphs in the streams of Spain and France lives an amoeba shaped like a candy cane. Why, you may ask, does it choose such a domicile and appearance? To the first, I can say: everyone loves a free lunch. And to the second: I really have no idea. Calling it an amoeba may be a slight stretch, however. It's only an amoeba for a short part of its life.
Leaf Fungus Smoothie Brings Endangered Hawaiian Flower Back From the Brink -- yet surprisingly, the most common organism in said smoothie was the very pathogen it was trying to prevent. Endophytes to the rescue! https://t.co/NgDA4IGgTghttps://t.co/C6GxVubQuz
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".
