For the record, I’ve considered dark chocolate part of a well-balanced diet ever since the day my taste buds were blessed with its rich, cocoa flavor, so it’s about time science caught up with me. Now, apparently, Mars and other brand-name chocolatiers have been on the ball for over three decades, funding a plethora of health studies on the DL to prove once and for all that dark chocolate does the body good.
Bagged lunches are a thing of the past, my friends. OK, Iâ€™m clearly exaggerating here, donâ€™t go tossing your paper carriers in the trash on my account. But in all seriousness, if youâ€™re not in the know already, allow me to divert your attention to the culinary art of bento boxing. In a sense, bento boxes are the adult version of your favorite zipper lunch bag, minus any cheesy memorabilia dĂŠcor.
Listen up ladies, because this is important. I don’t mean to be the Grinch who stole away your spooning time here, but before you get all cozy nestled in your partner’s arms and engage in some serious pillow talk after some steamy sex, it’s probably in your best interest to make a bee-line for the bathroom. Sexy AF, I know, but if after doing your thang with your partner, you’re lying there contemplating should you pee after sex or wait until later, I highly suggest you don’t hold off. Sex is fun.
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".
