Summer break means summer road trips, but unfortunately, for many that also means motion sickness. According to Best Health magazine, 90 per cent of adults are affected by motion sickness and children between the ages of 2 and 12 are most likely to feel ill during travel. Fortunately, the condition is preventable. Below, we look at ways to prevent motion sickness before it sets in. Researchers at the University of Maryland recommend sitting in the front seat of a car to reduce nausea.
Kids have no filter and Prince George is no exception. The young royal, who turns four years old on July 22, may not be very vocal but his facial expressions leave nothing to the imagination. After all, they say a picture's worth a thousand words and these photos hold nothing back. From excitement to exhaustion, Prince George has the perfect expression for almost every emotion and we absolutely love all of them.
Not all women experience it, but all women absolutely know about it — period pain is awful. So when Twitter user @goldenconceptng tweeted that he believes menstrual pain is a myth, women (and a few men) on the social network banded together to set him straight. And when ANOTHER man took his side and claimed women complain too much "as if it's some real difficult experience," a few women described the extreme struggles women can get during menstruation, including vomiting.
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".
