It’s a common cultural assumption that cardio is the best workout you can do—but it turns out that type of sweat sesh is only part of the equation for achieving optimal fitness. And for women especially, there seems to be a resounding fear that lifting weights won’t result in a feminine figure but rather one that’s burly and bulky. That notion isn’t necessarily correct, either—strength training is actually a great tool for females who want to sculpt a lean (but strong) body.
Ah how we love Whole Foods. Let us count the ways: There’s the expansive hot bar, the rows upon rows of healthy fare, the endless natural beauty and wellness products and so on and so on. If you’re only shopping for groceries there, you’re not utilizing the chain to its full potential. Here, we rounded up our favorite cosmetics—from skincare to nail polish—found in the aisles of our local Whole Foods. Talk about naturally chic.
Ushering in a breath of fresh air, however, are contemporary grassroots brands built on the premise of authenticity: companies that rely on a strong backbone of vision, quality and transparency to excite and inspire the masses. Labels that want to include their customer, not alienate her (or him). Brands that want to be our friend. And in some cases, brands that want to cast our friends—real women—as models and representatives of what they're all about.
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".
