We’re looking into stretch marks; is it possible to prevent them? A lot of women invest in products to prevent them like coco butter and bio-oil, but do they work? Our source is Dr. Tarek Fakhouri, a dermatologist with Southeast Dermatology. “There are no studies that have proven they prevent stretch marks; however, they do hydrate the skin well so it may make your skin feel better and it's not going to hurt. It’s something that’s easy to do and worth trying, but is it a miracle or silver bullet?
We're talking about something that every expectant mom wants to know. Most women labor between 12 and 24 hours so we're answering the question – Can you do anything to speed up the labor process? We're looking at two factors here – sleep and dried fruit dates. When it comes sleep, our source is a study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
After nine-plus months, is it possible to get that labor process moving naturally? Spicy foods, exercise and sex! Can these three things get that baby moving? Let's introduce you to our verify source – Dr. Diana Racusin specializes in maternal fetal medicine with UT-Health – UT Physicians. It's been said spicy food can get things moving. That is false – there's no known connection between the two. But is there another kind of heat that can help – I'm talking about sex.
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".
