What’s the harm in a little beer? That’s usually how it starts. Teenagers often are tempted to try some alcohol. Many give in when they are just 12 to 16 years old. Although they know they should avoid alcohol, many don’t. Some will soon end up drinking a lot — and often. This is called binge drinking. And when it begins at a young age, it can have lasting impacts. That’s the conclusion of a new study in rats. Binge drinking refers to downing several drinks within a short period of time.
When a young female attorney at a law firm goes on maternity leave, upon her return she may be in line for a trial case assignment, where she’ll work with a supervising partner. As an associate aiming to make partner in a couple years, she will need to work hard to prove herself, but the partner leading the case may assume she needs time with her baby and decide not to burden her with the trial. Thus, she misses an opportunity for career growth and opportunity.
If you were asked where the closest water fountain was, would you know? Some of you may if there’s a working water fountain in your office building, public library or park. Many of you may not know, but almost everyone could point out where to go to buy bottled water. That’s the assessment of Peter Gleick, president emeritus of the water think tank the Pacific Institute and co-author of a report on health concerns with water fountains.
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".
