Turmeric is the 4,000-year-old spice that gives Indian curry dishes their flavor and yellow color. One of its components, curcumin, is widely used to color mustards, margarines, butters, and cheeses, as well as cosmetics. Incidentally, like activated charcoal, turmeric is an ancient cure-all turned contemporary craze.Though the plant looks something like a carrot, turmeric is a rhizome, which means the portion that’s making headlines is in its rootstalk, a sort of underground stem.
You either know one or you are one—someone who is notoriously late, from work meetings to lunch dates, gym hours to the movies. Some call it laziness, rudeness, or attention-seeking, but research shows that the common causes of chronic lateness are two misperceptions: (1) how long a task will take to complete and (2) how long a minute lasts.How Long Is This Going to Take?Diana DeLonzor, author of Never Be Late Again, asked people to read from a book for what they felt was ninety seconds.
Getting your first paycheck out of college is a significant milestone, what Chandler Bing might call a “Dear Diary moment.” You hold your head a little higher as you sign and deposit it on your smartphone, with the sense that this is what adulting really looks like. But something else can often happen. Suddenly, that pair of shoes in the window you walk past every day is within reach. You trade ramen for sushi. You buy tickets, plan a trip, or indulge in fancy beauty buys.
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".
