Not all snacks are created equal. So if you’re going to have a bite between meals, why not make sure that you really need it and that it gives you a big nutritional bang for your buck? Get starting by asking yourself these four questions before your next snack. 1. What time is it? That’s right, timing is everything. “Really take note of when you feel slightly hungry between meals,” says Glassman.
Just like extra-dark chocolate drizzled over strawberries, the news about how often kids eat fruits and veggies is bittersweet. On the one hand, the under-18 set are eating more whole fruits. Unfortunately, 6 out of 10 kids still aren’t eating enough fruit, and 9 out of 10 still aren’t eating enough vegetables, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Pati Jinich laughs as she talks about the first time she prepared a meal for her family. The chef, cookbook author and star of PBS’s Pati’s Mexican Table was 9 years old and tasked with making Sunday morning eggs for her family. The cooking went well, but the seasoning did not. She was so overzealous with spices that the eggs changed color. “It taught me to tame my enthusiasm,” she says. Bringing kids into the kitchen doesn’t always end on a perfect note.
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".
