An alarming new study has shown that most of the bottled water available for purchase is contaminated with microplastics. Microplastics (pieces of plastic so small they’re invisible to the naked eye) were found in 93 percent of bottled water tested by scientists in a study requested by Orb Media.
Many people wouldn’t think twice about eating dessert for breakfast—seriously, try to tell me how a bakery muffin isn’t just an unfrosted cupcake—but scoff at the idea of a salad eaten before noon. OK, I get it. Transitioning from Nutella-filled, strawberry-frosted breakfasts to incorporating vegetables into your morning meal is tough at the start, but it doesn’t have to be a struggle. If you work with them a little, you can eat more vegetables for breakfast without once crunching on raw carrots.
The term “caffeinated alcoholic beverage” may remind you of the distinctly unpleasant flavor of Four Loko, but a new product may bring a classier edge to the concept. Apothic Wine has launched a cold brew-infused red wine, which will be available to the public in April. Touted as the first of its kind, Apothic’s cold brew wine, called Apothic Brew, is a limited edition blend of red wine that has been infused with cold brew coffee.
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".
