The holidays are nearly upon us, which we all know means one thing: a whole lot of eating. While it can be incredibly tempting to indulge yourself in a cornucopia of turkey and stuffing, you'll also probably regret it when you realize you've gained way more weight than you wanted to. Here are 10 scientifically proven ways to keep your stomach in check during the next few weeks.
Before training for my first marathon, I prepped like crazy. I read running books, devised a plan, and scheduled workouts into my Google calendar. What I didn't anticipate was around-the-clock hunger. After a run, my stomach screamed for sustenance all day. "I'm run-gry!" I cried as I plowed through sleeves of crackers and cookies and stacks of pancakes. It's no wonder I didn't shed a pound — and probably gained a few — despite logging hundreds of miles in four months.
You’ve heard it before: Exercise is particularly vital for people with arthritis. It can increase flexibility, reduce pain and ease joint stiffness – not to mention trimming your weight and boosting your strength. Yet only 13 percent of men and 8 percent of women with osteoarthritis get the recommended 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week, according to a study published in 2011 in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism.
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".
