Aging red meat and game birds is a global tradition. There are hundreds of varieties of techniques, from many religious cultures. The basic chemical concept is to remove liquids from meat with a diuretic as this is what food borne bacteria grow on. Before refrigeration technology, hanging and aging meat was the only option for storage. As air is the cheapest and most available diuretic, air drying became the most common way to store and cure meat for thousands of years.
Botanically speaking, the sunflower is more like corn than a flower. Their tasty kernels are made into the ever-present gas station snack, and their history and widespread availability has turned into a global commodity. Apart from the snack, sunflower seeds are commonly used in North America as a vegetable oil-producing plant. It has been commercially branded and industrially produced, yet is still available at your nearest organic health food store.
Malted seeds are largely known from malt beer, whisky, and vinegar making. In this “malting” process, barley seeds are washed with water and sprouted before being fermented. The sprouted seed makes usable simple sugars for yeasts to convert into alcohol. Malted seed ferments come from the kitchens of ancient grain savers and gardeners already proficient at sprouting seedlings. Barley first grew wild near and was domesticated in Syria.
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".
