You’ve probably heard the fairly conventional wisdom that, all else being equal, standing is better for you than sitting. But the science behind that claim has sometimes been unclear or even contradictory — a fact a recent analysis of dozens of studies tries to clear up. Its conclusion: Standing can help, but the results appear fairly modest. The metanalysis, by Mayo Clinic researchers, concluded that standing for six hours a day burns an extra 54 calories.
The long-standing mystery around the 1981 death of actress Natalie Wood has taken yet another turn, as a news report over the weekend disclosed that Wood’s former husband, actor Robert Wagner, is a “person of interest” in her death. Wood, whose death at 43 long has been tabloid and investigative news fodder, drowned off the California coast in November 1981. She had been on her family yacht with Wagner, actor Christopher Walken and the yacht’s captain, Dennis Davern.
For example: Americans are expected to eat 1.35 billion wings this weekend. That, the council says, is 20 million wings more than we ate last year. It’s enough wings to put 625 of them in every seat of all 32 National Football League stadiums. It’s enough to circle the Earth three times. But perhaps you think chicken-wing consumption is a young person’s calling. Perhaps you think the spicier varieties would not appeal to certain age demographics. Perhaps you would be wrong.
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".
