GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- A recent Fitbit analysis finds running is the nation's most popular work-out. For those who think they're burning hundreds of calories on long-distance runs, Mother Nature might let you down. Turns out longer runs don't burn as much as you think, as the body adjusts to the routine. For those in the slower lane, walking might also put you in a calorie burning rut.
ARDEN HILLS, Minn. - Many schools are now implementing open time during the day when students can choose what they want to do. Whether it's a weekly or daily event, that time can greatly reduce stress on students who need to visit a teacher, re-take a test or get homework done. Used unwisely, that opportunity can be wasted. That's what lead students at Mounds View High School in Arden Hills to develop software to help.
WAYZATA, Minn. -- Back pain can be irritating or debilitating depending on the duration and severity of your pain. GetHealthyU's Chris Freytag says a natural inclination is to cut back on activity, even immobilize your back to try to treat the pain. A better option might be yoga. Chris says gentle stretching through yoga can ease symptoms and keep you moving through your daily activities. Even if you don't have back pain, yoga can help with flexibility, strength and balance.
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".
