Are those french fries flirting with you? Does the donut demand to be eaten? A new study says you should just relax and dig in. Cheat days are every dieter’s dream. They’re the days when you can eat whatever you want whenever you want it and still be sticking to your diet. Sure, it’s only for a day a week but it sure is a good time, isn’t it? Think binging on pizza and beer, tacos and margaritas, whatever it is that tempts you, until you have had your fill. And definitely don’t skip dessert!
"Just get rid of it," says Keri Glassman, R.D.N., as Women's Health reports. "It is filled with unhealthy chemicals, including artificial sweeteners, which actually make you crave more calories later. "The worst news is that diet drinks have been linked to the one thing they are supposed to avoid: getting fat. These sodas may lead to obesity, increased blood pressure and diabetes.
A political leader who claims to be a man of the people corrupts his office to sate his own petty desires. That’s the central premise behind Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure.” While much has been made of it as a “problem” play that strains credulity, careening from melodrama to comedy, you might also make a case for the 1604 play’s enduring relevance in our post-truth era.
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".
