There’s nothing like your urethra feeling ablaze with the need to pee , then only a few meager drops trickling out when you try to go. Joy of all joys: You have a urinary tract infection . Everyone can agree that UTIs are obnoxious. But when they try to interfere with your sex life, that’s a whole other level of rude. One of the only things I hate more than that telltale burning urge to pee is when my UTI takes it a step further and stymies my sex life.
Late Tuesday night, Chrissy Teigen tweeted a question many of us have humored before. "Can you die of acid reflux?" she wrote . Though Teigen probably wasn't being entirely serious, her tweet tapped into something very real: Acid reflux can be annoying, frustrating, and downright painful to deal with. And although it won't kill you, it should still be taken seriously. This can cause heartburn , make it hard for you to swallow, or make you feel like you have a lump in your throat.
When I got back to New York City after three weeks of recent travel , I had one thing—err, person—at the top of my to-do list: my partner. There was just one little hiccup, though. I had a yeast infection . As many of us know a little too well, yeast infections are incredibly common. Up to 75 percent of women will get one at some point in their lives, according to the Mayo Clinic . Many will get more than one.
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".
