It was only a few years ago that a vegan diet was seen as restrictive - but even meat-eaters are tucking into a wide range of plant-based fare now that the lifestyle has become increasingly popular. There are more plant-based options than ever, with replacements for everything from milk to cheese available in major supermarkets. One of the trendiest alternatives is aquafaba - aka chickpea or bean water.
If you often order a coffee on a flight, then you might want to look away now. A flight attendant has revealed that the water used for coffee can contain dangerous E.coli bacteria. 'Betty,' who says she works for a major American airline, told Vice that the water used for coffee can be the same as the water used in the plane toilets. The attendant, who wished to remain anonymous to avoid losing her job, warned passengers: 'Don't drink the coffee on airplanes.'
Everyone loves to tuck into a sweet treat now and then, and youngsters in particular adore anything sugary. But according to Public Health England, children are eating three times more sugar than they should be, which has led to new guidance this month stating that under-11s should only be eating two low-calorie snacks a day. Even snacks that promote themselves as healthy treats such as fruit yoghurts and cereals can contain alarming levels of sugar, however.
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".
