When you move to the desert, nobody tells you about the problems with potting soil. Most folks here never learn the truth about what happens to them in a climate so extreme. Nobody tests their potting soils against months of 110° topping out at 120+, each and every summer. Such conditions dry these soils out to such an extent that the microbes die and the peat and fine ground bark become thoroughly dehydrated. Peat is a curious material.
"It's the only way I can make money and stay out of trouble." Karaijus Perry is putting distance between himself and the rest of his group on a Tuesday morning. The 15-year-old is leading the way on the seventh day of his first summer job, hired as part of the Martin Luther King Center Tarkington Work Crew. The group of teens is making its way east on 40th Street near Boulevard Place.
Agaves are the succulents that keep on giving. It's all about their curious reproductive behavior that makes them the easiest of all big succulents to transplant. You can obtain them free if you know how to exploit their growth habits to bring clones home to your own garden. With many species native to the colder mountain West, and even more from further south with surprising heat and drought resistance, older plants can be found all over.
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".
