While some cultures have been consuming jellyfish for centuries, the majority of people in the Western hemisphere are more likely used to seeing the gelatinous umbrella-shaped sea critters at the aquarium rather than the dinner table. But thanks to a group of scientists in Denmark, we might all be snacking on jellyfish soon. A Danish team has created a new technique that turns the squishy jellyfish into crunchy chips within a few days, a process that typically takes weeks.
A therapy dog in training sought out a man at the airport who’d lost his own pet the day before. Cora the Corgi was traveling with her owner, Madison Palm, from Idaho to Alaska. On a layover in Seattle, Cora wandered away from her owner and sat in front of a man sitting alone. “Before I could even call her, she was already at his feet being loved on,” Palm told Today. “I asked him if she was bothering him, and with a somber face and watery eyes he said, 'No, no. I lost my dog last night.'"
Jimmy Buffett fans looking to escape to Margaritaville at the singer’s Broadway musical had to do so without margaritas after the bar ran out of tequila. Parrotheads in attendance at the first preview performance of “Escape to Margaritaville” apparently drank more than expected. A source told The New York Daily News that it was a sold out show Friday and bartenders were not prepared. “The house did not expect to run out of Triple Sec, thus having to cut off Margarita sales,” the source said.
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".
