Northwestern started strong against Illinois but struggled as the match progressed, falling to its in-state rivals 3-0 Saturday in the Wildcats’ first home match of the season. The loss is the third time in a row NU has been swept after reeling off a nine-game winning streak during nonconference play. NU (10-4, 0-2 Big Ten) played its best volleyball in the first set, taking the court with a lot of energy and enthusiasm.
Question: I live in Vail. These ants are stripping my trees and bushes of their leaves. I’ve tried the ant baits, granular and sprays that I can buy, but they just keep coming back. So far they stripped a new pomegranate bush, a new Arizona ash (7 feet tall) and are now working on a mature desert willow tree. I can follow their trail of leaves to their nests and have tried to poison them. They will get my Lady Banksiae roses next.
Question: We have two Mexican fence posts, one in the back yard (eastern exposure) and one in the front yard (western exposure). They were both planted in 2010 and were mature when planted. The backyard fence post is doing well, but about six months ago the front yard fence post started to turn yellow. I’ve attached pictures for your review. We cover the fence posts in the winter when it gets below freezing and I hand water it once per week during the hottest months when we do not get rain.
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".
