Did another Christmas just pass without anyone gifting you the Vitamix you’ve had o your list for years, as you’ve dutifully burned though cheap blender after cheap blender? Well, it’s time you take matters into your own hands. Amazon has the Professional Series 200 model on sale for $285, marked down from its original $450. It’s got 10 speed settings and a 64 oz container that can be switched out for a smaller one if it works better for your space.
Over the past year or so, some of the most in-the-know outdoor types in my life have, when it comes to their choice of lightweight down layers anyway, ditched the fancy high-end brands most people haven’t heard of and returned to an American classic that was in danger of being forgotten. Eddie Bauer’s Downlight Stormdown jacket offers 800-fill insulation that’ll offer enough protection for even the coldest of cold-weather activities.
There’s a time and a place for your heavy-duty thermoses and complicated portable coffee systems — but if you’re taking off on a long hike and settling in for a night of no-frills camping, you’re gonna want to keep the weight of your pack in mind. Enter the Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall Cup, an extremely lightweight mug with a folding handle that’ll keep your coffee hot without bogging you down. They sell regularly for $60, but the silver version is on sale for $35 at Amazon right now.
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".
