A review of several scientific studies, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, found that artificial sweeteners do not support weight management, and also that "routine intake of nonnutritive sweeteners may be associated with increased BMI and cardiometabolic risk." They weren't able to determine if these increased health risks were from using the artificial sweeteners, or were just associated with people who use them.
Sharma is part of a team, along with Nikhil Kaushik and others, that founded Graviky Labs, a collaborative tech startup in India. Sharma completed his Master's degree at MIT and with his colleagues, launched a kickstarter to fund their protype "Air-INK"— turning carbon pollution into ink using a trademarked system they named "Kaalink." Air pollution has become a huge problem worldwide, and been particularly problematic throughout Asia's rapid industrialization.
The fix was easy enough. I swept up the broken glass, then vacuumed the room to pick up any stray shards. However, glass is especially tricky to clean up completely for two reasons: it has a habit of breaking into impossibly tiny pieces, and once it does, it's practically invisible. The following morning I immediately stepped on a tiny shard of glass with my heel. At first it felt like a bee-sting, a small annoyance, and I swatted at my heel absentmindedly and kept walking towards the coffee maker.
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".
