It is the time of year for parties, gatherings, and when high calorie foods seem to be everywhere. Many of us enjoy these once a year treats and look forward to eating them. Unfortunately these high calorie foods can lead to unwanted weight gain which leads to New Year resolutions to lose the weight that was gained. Not usually much of a problem for most of us. But when you are pregnant during this season those extra pounds can be harder to lose after the pregnancy.
Growing a baby is a monumental achievement for a woman’s body. When a woman becomes pregnant she not only grows a baby, she grows an organ, a placenta, to feed the baby while it is growing in her uterus. The challenges her body experience are not all pleasant ones. One of the most challenging is nausea and vomiting in the early months of the pregnancy. For some women it lasts the whole pregnancy. Here are two theories why this happens.
“Colds” are caused by viruses. RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) is one of the viruses that cause “cold” symptoms. Those symptoms are coughing, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, earache and fever. For most people a typical cold will hang around for one to two weeks. The symptoms remain mostly in the upper respiratory area of our body. We usually feel better when we eat some chicken soup, take medications that treat symptoms, gargle with salt water and rest.
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".
