Hurricanes cause widespread destruction even after they’re gone. Sadly, those affected are more likely to get sick, whether it’s because of polluted water or injuries sustained during the storm. A major storm can also have long-lasting mental health consequences. Here are all the ways a hurricane impacts your health — and what you can do to cope, or help someone else recover. It’s not always the storm itself, but the aftermath of its resulting floods that pose the greatest health risks.
Though diet isn’t the only contributor to heart disease, many people continuously eat the wrong foods without making the switch to healthier alternatives. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and the CDC warns major risk factors include poor diet, overweight and obesity, and diabetes. You don’t have to quit all “bad” foods right away. You can, however, start incorporating healthier foods into your meals and snacks. Here’s what you should start eating more of every day.
Knowing what to eat to lose weight makes shedding pounds a little easier. Choosing the right breakfast foods, however, still seems challenging. Breakfast food provides so many savory, sweet, irresistible options that avoiding bacon and fried eggs can feel like an impossible obstacle. Even convenience foods like “healthy” cereals aren’t helping you lose weight. Here’s why what you’re eating isn’t working — and what to have instead.
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".
