Anyone who eats only half of an avocado each time they indulge in the art-worthy fruit knows the common struggle of keeping the other half fresh for later. Sometimes, it can feel impossible to avoid the dreadful browning that occurs once the lush green inside of an avo is exposed to the air. However, thanks to a new tool created by the folks at AvoSeedo, we may be able to avoid the annoying predicament entirely. The tool in question is called the Avocado Saver.
The easy-to-use, cartoon-like function sort of takes the place of location stickers by making it possible to see what your friends (and maybe your ex) are up to in real time on an actual map. It's kind of like the social media version of Apple's Find My Friends — and, yes, it might be a tad over-the-top. On the plus side, stalking your ex just got way easier. (Hooray!) You can now conveniently lurk on Snap Map to get a full look at how your ex is spending their miserable days without you.
You may remember the many woes of school. From the drama to the workload to — worst of all — the tests, it was a lot. I certainly don't miss spending hours studying math concepts that I still haven't used in the real world. Just like I was totally over it back then, today's teens seem to feel the same way. While I would never condone cheating (seriously, don't cheat), one Twitter user has gone viral for the beautiful way he expertly avoided memorizing the formulas before an exam.
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".
