It seems like a no-brainer: You use your smartphone for texting, photography, email, and social media, so why not tap into its fitness capability as well? Most people carry their phone everywhere, and devices like the iPhone have a step tracker already loaded as a standard feature. But a new study suggests that your smartphone might not be so smart when it comes to tracking how many steps you take per day.
There are two types of hemorrhoids: External hemorrhoids are located under the skin around your anus, and can form a small, hard bulge there. They can also cause bleeding, painful swelling, and itching (While rare, bleeding in your poop can be serious—it's just one of the 7 signs of colon cancer in young men). Internal hemorrhoids are found in your rectum—the lowest part of your large intestines—and usually aren’t painful.
Prostate cancer is the third most common form of cancer in the U.S., with more than 160,000 men diagnosed with it each year, according to the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program (SEER). The good news is, as far as cancers go, it’s pretty curable: More than 98 percent of men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer survive for five years or more.
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".
