When we think of dog-walking benefits, it's easy to shift our attention to the star of the show, also known as our precious pup. But there's a great new benefit of walking a dog that was just discovered, and it actually helps you — yes, you! — the dog's human companion. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that walking is good for your health, not just your pup's. But you might be surprised to know just how good it is — and how long the effects last.
Jenna Winchester always weighed more than her peers while she was growing up. But when her father's weight-related insults started piling on in her teen years, so did more pounds on her already overweight frame. “I got extremely depressed and wouldn’t leave the house or do anything but eat and sleep,” Winchester said. “That is when the weight all truly piled on.”At just 5'6", Winchester weighed in at a whopping 370 pounds. And whenever she tried to lose weight, she struggled tremendously.
Many folks who own and use vintage Pyrex swear it's still as good as gold. But they might not realize just how accurate that is. Consider this: The price of a gram of gold today is $40.37. Keeping this is mind, we hope you're sitting down when you hear that a single vintage Pyrex bowl from the 1940s is selling for a whopping $1,000. But if you've been browsing Etsy recently and saw that a Pristine Pink Gooseberry Pyrex set is selling for $1,850, then maybe that's not a huge shock to you.
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".
