Like all things worth having, grapefruit demands you work hard to get it. Whereas an orange will eventually bend to your will and give you fruit segments that easily peel apart with only a thin, relatively tasteless membrane remaining, grapefruit won’t go down without a fight. Even if you peel past its thick exterior, you’ll soon find yourself battling a white, bitter layer called pith and a clear, chewy membrane.
Adair-Benning said her elopement client numbers have quadrupled over the past decade, with elopements now making up a third of her business. These clients are typically young professionals in their late 20s to early 40s whose reasons for eloping run the gamut. Some want small weddings to keep the day affordable while others want to sidestep family drama, such as relatives who don’t get along. Around 90 per cent of her clients keep the wedding a secret until they return home, she said.
A new condition called “avocado hand” is affecting everyone from brunch-going millennials to guacamole-loving seniors. Emergency room doctors say the condition can be serious and typically presents as a stab wound to the palm or a deep cut along the fingers. If you haven’t already guessed — yes, people are injuring themselves trying to hack pits out of avocados. It even happened to Meryl Streep.
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".
