What was on the L train today? Hm…Well, there were the Skrillexes. Minty-dyed pastel weaves. Inflatable plastic surgery lips. Septum rings…Chihuahuas and Pomeranians tucked in collapsible Prada travel bags, with bladders about to burst…Homeless. Singers. Music-listeners. Fidgeter-dancers listening to music, twisting their vinyl, Etsy backpacks into this annoyed woman’s face. Talkers and listeners.
Invasive plant species can make it a pain to grow weed. These are plants that are not native to the landscape that can interfere with the growth of the original plant and reduce wildlife biodiversity. With just a few weeks into spring, be mindful of what you may be planting along with your weed. Some invasive plants can make it particularly tough to grow cannabis plants. We’ve listed a few below. English ivy plants have the power to spread horizontally and climb to 50 feet or more.
I didn’t have a single drink in high school. My story’s not one of those where I started drinking at nine and couldn’t stop. No. I lived a very sheltered life, though my parents definitely dealt with their share of alcohol issues when I was growing up. But this is not about their stories. It’s about mine. I was diagnosed with epilepsy or seizure disorder when I was 17 — doctors think it had to do with a coma I was in as a result of a drunk driving accident. They told me not to drink.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
