Getting too much sugar during pregnancy could lead to health issues for your baby later in life. Here's the latest research. You probably know that salted caramel ice cream and those gourmet cream-filled doughnuts aren’t exactly good for you. But when you’re eating for two, and you’ve already given up wine and most of your daily caffeine supply, you need a little room to indulge, right?
A new study finds that taking aspirin can significantly reduce the risk that women with high-risk pregnancies will develop preeclampsia. If you have a family history of preeclampsia or if you have a condition like diabetes, chronic high blood pressure, kidney disease or polycystic ovarian syndrome, which puts you at a higher risk for preeclampsia, there’s good news: Taking a simple, over-the-counter drug could help keep you and your baby safe.
If your blinds have cords that are longer than 22 centimetres, they could pose a strangulation risk. Here's what you need to know. Take a look around your house: Do you have any blinds with pull cords? It takes just 15 seconds for a child to be strangled by a cord. That’s why Health Canada is urging parents to do away with corded window coverings and is proposing new regulations that would restrict cords to a maximum length of 22 centimetres and limit cord loops to 44 centimetres in perimeter.
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".
