When facing suddenly snug jeans, most men default to the treadmill. There’s a pervasive myth, embedded by those sociopath PE teachers who marshalled you across country, that the most effective way to burn fat is cardio. Endless, uninspiring cardio. The kind of exercise that stops people ever attempting exercise. Not that we’re blaming PE teachers for the obesity crisis (thanks, Mr Rowan). But the indoctrination that more miles run means fewer inches around your waist is tough to overturn.
There are certain things to which a man must resolve himself. Ageing, the weather, David Cameron’s tax affairs; all a waste of rage. Most would have you believe your hairline is equally unfixable, that all you can do is curse your father and watch your forehead inexorably towards your crown. But that’s the kind of attitude that would have seen Hitler bunked up in London. With a more combative approach, you can win the war on thinning hair.
A strong jawline that's roughly the same width as your cheekbones and a face that's about as tall as it is wide. Forget the buzz cut unless you’re channelling Buzz Lightyear. “If you’ve got a square jaw, you want to keep more hair on the sides and back because it stops the jawline being so pronounced,” says Dan Gregory, creative director at Man Made London. Ask for a scissor cut all over that sticks to your natural hairline.
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".
