While those extra 5 pounds came off without a fight in your 20s, getting older means it takes a few more sit-ups or an extra half-mile to shed that weight. It’s an unfair but scientifically proven fact: Losing weight becomes harder the older you get. However, that doesn’t mean that looking and feeling your best is by any means impossible. To fight back against the signs of aging, creating a healthy regimen of nutrition-conscious dieting and exercise can help you say “so long” to bad scale days.
Mosquitoes thrive in the very weather that Southwest Florida is best known for—hot days and muggy, rainy afternoons in the summer. The abundance of rain leads to water pooling near homes and in backyards, creating the perfect breeding ground for the pesky insects to spread disease and their painful “bites.”Before running to the store to grab “OFF!” spray, which contains DEET, try some of these more natural insect repellents that are gentler on your skin (and on your mind).
Ever wonder why you might be extremely jittery after your second cup of coffee? What about that sudden wave of sleepiness after eating that Thanksgiving turkey? Research says that your brain has a lot to do in the processing and utilization of food. According to a Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science article by Sarah-Marie Hopf, a complex relationship between the brain and food includes the use and transportation of serotonin, tryptohan, valine and tyrosine.
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".
