Stanley Miklis, horticulturist and professional cactus grower, suggests waiting for flowers to fall before taking a clipping to prevent getting in the way of new buds. As for their growing patterns, this type of cactus grows in humid tropical jungles and not in a desert, he adds. Instead, you can find them in the coastal trees of southeast Brazil where they grow high up, which makes them epiphytic growers like orchids.
If you walked into my room on any random morning over the past month, you might think I was faking a fever with the classic covers-to-chin, thermometer-sticking-out-of-mouth ruse. True, each morning I was taking my temperature, but not to get out of work. It was to get out of using a condom during sex.
We’re on the verge of that gluttonous downfall that is the holiday season. Somehow mindful eating, gut health, and portion control get overlooked as big hams and plates of brownies are passed around, so you may be left with a bloated belly and tight fitting pants. “In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), we refer to bloating after large meals as 'food stagnation,'” says Mona Dan, LAc., MTOM acupuncturist, herbalist, and owner of Vie Healing.
One of my FAVORITE occurrences is when someone on the highway sprays their windshield and it gets on the car behind them, which triggers an entire lane of people passive aggressively cleaning their windshields.
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".
