I’ve been regularly surfing the crimson wave for over two decades now — first with pads, then tampons. But for all my empowered, millennial feminism, it’s taken me 20 years to finally give menstrual cups a try. If there’s going to be more trash than fish in the ocean by 2050, my mission to reduce my footprint starts now. Having already made a conscious effort to eschew plastic straws, plastic bags, and takeaway cups, it was time to tackle my period, too.
HOUSTON - Dreams and visions of the dying have been well-documented throughout history and across cultures. They often give patients comfort as they approach death. But they've never been studied scientifically, until now. "Another time, she's coming outside in her flowered dress with her apron on," Geraldine Musser described. Musser is a hospice patient who's talking about the dream she had about her mother, who died many years ago. "It means she's out there.
HOUSTON - It’s good for your heart and good for your muscles. But is running good for your brain? A pair of researchers at the University of Arizona discovered running improves the connectivity of parts of the brain that lose traction as we get older. Gabe Mogollon is a state champion middle school runner. “Each day I just kind of have like, a mini-goal to do whatever during my run, so when I’m done, I feel like I’ve done something for the day,” Mogollon said.
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".
