For the first time ever, giant bubbles of methane have been filmed by the Blue Planet II team in the Gulf of Mexico. A moment that may never be seen again. On the hunt for brine pools, the crew were amazed to also discover bubbles the size of basketballs erupting from the ocean floor, followed by a trail of sediment. The location of the methane bubbles, 650m down, took submersibles an hour to reach.
Matcha is a type of green tea made using a unique process from leaf to cup. It also has a special cultural significance in Japanese tea ceremonies. The powdered tea dates back to the 10th century, when Zen Buddhists made drinking the beverage a part of their meditative ritual. They found that the tea brought them a sense of clarity, focus, and energy, and a feeling of well-being. Although the tea originates in China, Japan popularized the matcha tea ceremony.
By Nicola Brown, Program Associate at the Illinois Solar Energy Association*Right now, the state of Illinois is ranked 34th in the nation in terms of clean energy production, according to Energy.gov. However, all of that is about to change: the Illinois state legislature recently enacted the Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA). This policy updates the Illinois Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), which requires increased energy production from renewable sources.
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".
