The Problem: Bored of the bread you eat for breakfast and lunch, or trying to substitute it with a new and healthy option? Try sweet potato toast! The Hack: Sweet potato toast — seriously! Sweet potato is a tasty root vegetable that’s always a healthy pick. It’s gluten-free, high in fibre and rich in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that the body converts into vitamin A, which we need for healthy vision, skin and our immune system.
The Problem: This week’s meals could use some avocado, but yours are far from ripe. The Hack: Avocados are a favourite food — from guacamole and avocado toast to Tex-Mex, this creamy and flavourful healthy fat is a welcome addition to many meals. However, it’s a tricky one to pin down when it comes to ripeness. If you’ve bought unripe avocados to ensure they don’t go bad right away, they may not be ready when you want to use them. You can speed up the process in a day or two.
The Problem: Root veggies such as potatoes and sweet potatoes are a staple of fall cooking, but peeling them is tedious and time consuming. The Hack: There are so many ways to cook with different varieties of potatoes, from mashed, scalloped, baked and more. But the peeling can slow you down! To rid yourself of this task, cook the potatoes with the skin on. Before boiling, score a horizontal line all the way around the centre of the potato, not cutting deeper than the skin.
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".
