After years of carbs being demonised as 'bad for you' (I see you, Dukan and Atkins), we finally have a study that confirms all of your greatest dreams at once - inhaling a spag bol isn't committing 'carbicide'. In fact, it has a place in a healthy and balanced diet. A study published in the Nutrition & Diabetes journal has found that pasta may actually be better for your waistline, rather than making you put on weight.
The move to digital has dominated the business landscape for many years. The concept isn’t new by any stretch and is bordering on gag-reflex-inducing buzzword status. From websites and mobile apps, to e-marketing campaigns and online sales, a lion’s share of funding, attention and interest has pointed toward digitizing a company. Blank checks created a lot of momentum for those projects, along with a fair share of organizational grumbling.
A toned bum is the top of many gym bunnies' to-do list. But if the thought of endlessly doing squats and lunges in the gym breaks you out in a cold sweat, try this four-step , full body workout that focuses on toning the bum, while targeting other areas too. Devised with PT Theodore Valente at The Lomax Way, this workout has been tried and tested by a member of the Cosmo team - who as you can see in the GIF tutorial, was knackered!
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".
