Most households, ours included, got hit with a flu bug over the holidays. It wasn't fun or very jolly. If you or someone you know comes down with a cold or flu virus this season, here are some tips for how to speed up your healing time. 1. At the onset of any illness, eliminate dairy and refined sugar where possible. Both dairy and sugar will worsen any inflammation in the body (i.e. body aches), and they'll feed the bug, encouraging it to stick around.
It's December, which means I get to share lots of healthier holiday recipes. I know how easy it can be to fall off the gluten-free, sugar-free wagon. Trust me, I've been there. The best way to avoid falling off the healthy wagon, in my experience, is to make sure you have plenty of nutritious treats available so you don't feel any deprivation. These days nutritious recipes are so easy to find, and they even taste delicious. I love serving my guests healthy desserts.
You might be wondering why you would ever need a single serving recipe for cupcakes. I know, I get it, there's nothing wrong with a dozen cupcakes sitting around waiting to be eaten. But sometimes, life calls for just one cupcake. Here's why you might need just one cupcake:1. When you get a craving for anything chocolate. 2. When you get a craving for something sweet. 3. When you totally forgot that your son has a birthday party in two hours and you need4.
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".
