We all do our best to eat healthy every day. But if you tear your calf mid-Tough Mudder or herniate an intervertebral disc doing deadlifts, suddenly food isn't about fueling a workout, it's about fueling your recovery. "If you get injured, your perspective on nutrition has to shift," says Pam Nisevich Bede, RD, sports dietitian with Abbott's EAS Sports Nutrition. Your focus is now fighting inflammation and fueling repair.
We obsess over which athletic shoes are best for our feet, yet most of us throw on generic $10 flip flops without a second thought. They may be a summer staple, but podiatrists say your basic thong sandal can do serious damage to your feet. “Your basic flip flop provides minimal stability and orthopedic support of the arch, heel and forefoot,” says Rock G. Positano, D.P.M., podiatrist and director of the Non-Surgical Foot and Ankle Service at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
Your mouth says a lot - and we mean that both literally and figuratively. Because while you might think your teeth and gums have little or nothing to do with your lungs or heart, they can actually show early warning signs of serious health conditions across your entire body, from lung cancer to heart disease to dementia. Read on to learn what different types of teeth problems might mean.
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".
