A new hybrid vegetable is coming to the U.S, and it’s dubbed Kalettes. It combines two of the trendiest, and perhaps most under-appreciated-by-children vegetables of all time. This new veggie is a hybrid between kale and Brussels sprouts, and that’s a pretty crazy combination! Those of you who buy Brussels sprouts at the market know that the sprouts grow on a thick stalk. With Kalettes, you keep the thick stalk, but instead of Brussels sprouts you have kale leaves.
I’m all for restaurants having the freedom to run their businesses as they wish, but one restaurant in Florida has used its freedom in an interesting way. The chef has decided to enforce his opinion that ketchup is only appropriate for children. And he does this despite having a section of the menu devoted to hamburgers! (This restaurant isn't the only one with this anti-ketchup view. One ballpark vendor got fired after arguing with customers who asked for ketchup on their hot dogs.)
Foraging has always intrigued me, even when I was a child. My friend and I would go around her familyâ€™s five acres, collecting the few wild plants that we knew to be safe to eat and sitting down to enjoy their green flavor. But foraging in the city never occurred to me, until recently. I heard of a man who took groups of people around his city, showing them common plants they could safely eat. Though perhaps not quite as picturesque as roaming a field for edible plants, it piqued my interest.
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".
