People are less happy overall the week after Daylight Savings kicks in, research shows. What’s more, the number of people seeking help for depression spikes 8% immediately following the shift from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time every fall, according to a 2016 study published in Epidemiology. Researchers aren’t totally sure what triggers the increase, but believe moving the hour of daylight from evening to morning makes cold, dark days feel even shorter.
Trying to find the perfect product for facial hair removal? One Women's Health writer gets to grips with this at-home laser removal device - and here are the results... I first noticed dark, coarse hairs growing on my chin when I was in secondary school. I grabbed a pair of tweezers from my mum’s makeup bag to pluck the hairs away and prayed they’d never come back. But within days, they’d sprouted back up. They looked like little bamboo shoots in my magnifying mirror.
Whether you're totally new to exercise or already a ClassPass addict, one thing's for certain: your gym will be packed to the gills in January. The annual surge of people who've made getting in shape their top New Year's resolution will leave you waiting in line for a treadmill, closed out of your favorite spin class, and fighting for a few square inches of mat space.
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".
