It’s a question that challenges even the most solid of relationships, at least according to a new study by researchers at Duke University. The study, published this month in the Journal of Consumer Research found that seemingly insignificant differences in tastes — like preferring Pepsi products over Coca Cola — can actually have more of an impact on happiness in relationships than other personality traits or interests.
The so-called “pink tax” — or the additional costs women pay for everyday products — isn’t just limited to tampons and razors. Women, per capita, pay $361,200 over their lifetimes for healthcare, compared with $268,700 for men. But better care doesn’t come with paying that extra $90,000 or so. "Unfortunately, women are taken less seriously more often than men when it comes to pain," women’s health expert Jennifer Wider, M.D. told Broadly earlier this year.
The mother of an Australian bodybuilder is blaming her daughter’s sudden death on her use of protein supplements. Meegan Hefford, 25, was eating a diet rich in protein — and protein shakes — to prepare for an upcoming bodybuilding competition when she collapsed on June 19. She was pronounced brain dead on June 22, just hours after doctors finally learned what caused her sudden collapse: urea cycle disorder.
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".
