So-called "fitspirational” accounts on social media make it seem like having sick-pack abs and single-digit bodyfat percentage is the key to happiness, but one former bodybuilder shut down that perception with her reverse transformation. "Bodybuilder to body lover", Montana-based Jolene Jones wrote in a now-viral Facebook post of two photos: one of her during a bodybuilding competition and the other of her body today with 25 additional pounds.
Deciphering a yoga studio schedule can be pretty intimidating with different types of classes — none of which are just called "yoga.”While many beginners assume that yoga is just one-size-fits-all practice, it’s actually a catch-all term for the 5,000-year-old practice of harmonizing the body and mind with distinct poses (asanas), breathing exercises and meditation. The different styles of yoga have different benefits, but deciphering which is best for you isn’t easy.
Pay attention if you think you’re lazier than your pals: A new study by researchers at Stanford University found that laziness can be hazardous to your health — and it has nothing to do with the actual amount of exercise you do. Researchers Octavia Zahry and Alia Crum studied two decades worth of data from 61,141 adults that died by Dec. 31, 2011, and found that those who just thought they were lazier than their pals were much more likely to die.
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".
