While cats are plenty silly on their own, there are few things like seeing your kitty under the influence of catnip. For those cats who respond to the nip—experts say that’s anywhere from 50 to 70 percent of felines—reactions can vary from purring, rubbing, and vocalizing to rolling and even amorousness, says Dr. Sarah Gorman, associate veterinarian at Boston Animal Hospital. Cats do not respond to the taste of catnip but rather the smell, Gorman notes.
In many areas of the United States, ice melt is an absolute necessity during the winter months. It keeps sidewalks clear, ensures driveways and parking lots are clean and ice-free, and roads safe for driving. However, while ice melt is essential, not all types are safe for use around pets. Some are quite toxic when ingested, while others cause irritation to paws, skin, or mucous membranes after exposure.
It’s January. The local pub is doing a roaring trade in lime and soda but even that small outlay is too much for many of our abused bank accounts. We need all the help we can get. And yet millions of Britons are failing to claim the benefits they are full entitled to designed to make specific, financially stressful situations a little easier. The latest figures suggest 300,000 unemployed or very low earners, for example, are missing out on support worth at least £73 a week.
No, no way. Xmas was expensive. I'm deleting all sale emails. Though I better just check for decent deals on kids clothing. They're always growing. I might have a look at the ski deals for next year... And there's the Boden sale. That's worth a few quid. Ooh look a new hoover...
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".
