It’s not just pregnant women who are drinking more: A just-released study says new parents are increasingly hitting the bottle, too. Twenty-two percent of mothers admitted to increasing their alcohol intake postpartum, though fathers seem to drink more overall. 40 percent of new dads said they drink several times a week, and 13 percent daily; that’s compared to 28 percent and 4 percent of mothers. Then again, what else are you supposed to do when you’re awake all night with a newborn?
Remember how we mentioned that Starbucks had recruited a Liquiteria employee and was making plans to dominate the fresh-juice business? Well, better enjoy your mom-and-pop juiceries while you can: the coffee giant’s first Evolution Fresh store opens today in Bellevue, Washington. (As genius as the company normally is at branding, it’s evidently not so great at spelling, as the “vegatables” advertised in the photo proves.)
Hey Foodspotters and foodsters and anybody whoâ€™s ever made a dining companion wait ten minutes to eat while you angled for just the right shot: The iPhone 5 sounds made for you. Apple has clearly figured out that â€œpeople only use iPhones to take photos of their food,â€? so theyâ€™ve given the next iGadget a 50-millimeter macro lens, perfect for capturing all the table-porn images that â€œturn your life into a seemingly enjoyable lie.â€?
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".
