When it comes to food, I am super into my habits. Every morning, I dig into a big bowl of oatmeal, every afternoon I graze on nuts and an apple, and every night after dinner I have yogurt and fruit for dessert. While I don’t think most nutritionists would have a problem with my choices, I do get a bit bored with myself. Yet it’s hard to find a lot of other foods that feed the beast and are still healthy.
Think there’s nothing nastier than a dried-out steak? There is —and it involves diarrhea, cramps, fever, and vomiting. Raw meats can play host to a laundry list of bacteria, viruses, and toxins, including salmonella, E coli, campylobacter, clostridium, and Staphylococcus aureus (say that last one three times fast). Every year an estimated one in six Americans gets sick from these bugs.
Rice tends to get messed up, Schaaf explains, because you either cook it for too long, over too high heat, or don’t use enough water. Overcooking rice caramelizes the starch (sugars) in rice, giving it a sticky texture, says Moore; too-high heat cooks the grains on the bottom of the pan before the rest of the pot, causing it to burn by the time the batch is ready to serve. But there is hope! Anyone can make the perfect pot of brown rice, and in less time than you think.
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".
