We’re all susceptible to dry lips. Especially as the weather gets colder and windier, our lips lack moisture and get more chapped. Habitually licking our lips and a lack of humidity are a couple causes of chapped lips, shares dermatologist Patricia Wexler, MD. She suggests protecting your lips. “It’s easier than treating,” says Wexler. How? For starters, don’t lick lips, which is irritating and dehydrating.
"Pura vida," said our driver and tour guide Sergio Quesada of Costa Rican Trails on the way to the Xandari Resort and Spa in Alajuela, Costa Rica. This is likely the first phrase you'll become acquainted with in Costa Rica, and one you'll quickly pick up.Though its literal translation is "pure life," the term can be used in various contexts.
What do chocolate, pizza, and pasta al pomodoro have in common (other than they’re delicious)? They can cause heartburn. Are you groaning, because we certainly are. “Normally, when a person eats or drinks, food / beverage flows down and the lower part of the esophagus relaxes to allow the passage of the food / beverage into the stomach, then closes back,” explains Maya Feller a registered dietitian nutritionist.
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".
