In New York, when 5 cents was worth a lot more than it is today, they used to say, “A nickel will get you on the subway, but garlic will get you a seat.”As many people know, garlic imparts legendary health benefits — from reduction of high blood pressure to cancer prevention to strengthening of the immune system. I have a friend who, each day during the winter, consumes one garlic clove steeped in honey and says he never catches a cold.
Are your apples asymmetrical? Are your blueberries behind in their ripening schedule? Is the growth of your strawberries stunted? The problem might be insufficient bee activity. When bees are abundant and flowers properly pollinated, fruit size increases, ripening happens faster, and evenly shaped, symmetrical fruit develop. Just because a flower is pollinated once by a bee does not mean that the fruit developing from that flower will grow to its full potential.
The La Tuna Canyon fire in the first week of September, which burned more than 7,000 acres, was the largest wildfire in the history of Los Angeles. Because of maintaining fire-defensible space around their homes, which number around 750, the residents of La Tuna Canyon did not suffer property damage, although a few homes and structures in adjacent Tujunga Canyon were damaged or destroyed. In the wake of this record conflagration, it makes sense to ask yourself: Am I living in a defensible space?
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".
