Resist the urge to hide in the back— you want a clear view of your instructor so you can shadow her moves, not your classmates'. (Some people find it easier to stand just to the right of the instructor, Greiner says; since we read from left to right, learning from that perspective may make things click quicker.) Watch from the ground up and don't worry about the arms. After you've perfected the feet, you can start adding in the upper body.
Here's another reason to pop the cork on a bottle of wine: Dark-colored Muscadine grapes—the kind used in many red wines and grape juices—contain a chemical called ellagic acid, which new research has found dramatically slowed the growth of existing fat cells and formation of new ones, so your body burns fat better. The chemical also boosts metabolism of fatty acids in liver cells, which can improve liver function.
You've likely seen runners wearing high compression socks or calf sleeves, or experienced that encased sausage feeling yourself when trying to squeeze into a pair of compression shorts or tights. The claims: They'll make you run faster, jump higher, and recover better after exercise. But do they really work? And if so, how can a simple pair of pants make so much of a difference?
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".
