LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) — We at THV11 looked into the safety of a popular household appliance: the microwave oven. Microwaves heat and cook food quickly by exposing it to electromagnetic radiation. It's become a modern day convenience in our fast-paced lives. But a viewer emailed us, saying he'd been shown a report which stated microwaving food degrades the nutritional value and that you should never microwave food. The article was published on the website Natural Society in November of 2011.
Verify, by definition, means to demonstrate something is true or accurate. Well 'tis the season for giving. And you may have seen that secret Santa sister gift exchange making its rounds on social media. The post claims you only have to buy one gift at ten dollars or more for the promise of six to 36 gifts in return. Some posts even show photos of gifts and packages waiting at the front door. And countless people are responding on social media saying they're in. But is it too good to be true?
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) — Why is it that when someone in the same room yawns, you often end up yawning too? Our sources include a UAMS sleep expert, and a study published in the medical journal called "current biology" and we ask the question. "Yes, yawning is contagious. but scientific studies have also shown that to be true," Caris Fitzgerald said. "And not just in humans but in vertebrates in general, parakeets, dogs cats, wolves."
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".
