We've known for a while now that women are more likely to develop depression than men – in fact by age 15, girls are twice as likely to experience the mental illness. But now research from neuroscientists at the University of Cambridge have found that being female not only increases the likelihood of depression but also the way in which it manifests. Stylist.co.uk reports that whether you are male or female can also affect how the disorder manifests and its consequences.
Even with society's increasingly open mind set to mental illness, broaching the topic at work can still be nerve-wracking and awkward. So when we hear a story about someone who is brave enough to open up about their mental state at work, we can't help but feel encouraged. Madalyn Parker recently shared such a story both in praise of her sympathetic employer and to help others alleviate some of the fear they may be feeling about asking for a day off due to mental health, Stylist.co.uk reports.
We aren't the only ones who are struggling in this heat – our furry friends are, too. The only difference is that they can't help themselves to an ice cream from the freezer or meet their friends for a cold Pimm's. So, it's down to us to keep them cool and stop them from dehydrating so that they aren't at risk of heat-induced conditions such as heat stroke – which can end up being fatal. The Blue Cross have several suggestions as to how to keep your pooch perfectly cool.
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".
