This year we finally planted our first real vegetable garden, since we now live in a place that is warm enough to have a real vegetable garden. Every day my daughter is out there foraging for whatever looks yummy and ripe—raspberries, lettuce, celery, potatoes, and more—because there really is nothing like a just-picked vegetable or fruit. Things my daughter thought she didn’t like (lettuce, go figure) she loves from our garden.
I’m often surprised when people tell me they don’t like blueberries, or just think of them as a nothing-y fruit. Granted, they get a bad rap because most of the year they don’t taste like much. But find them in season, whether you are at the grocery store or a farmers’ market, and they are succulently fragrant and bursting with flavor.
S Whether you’re pressed for time, or wanting to spend your night with your friends and family and not around the stove, the slow cooker is the best way to get dinner on the table with minimal effort. See our some of our favorite tips. A protein-packed, savory, filling warm dish great for cold days, and an amazing compliment to summer favorites like hot dogs and nachos. This easy, classic chicken soup is made in the slow cooker, so it's more convenient than grandma's, but just as tasty.
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".
