Called by the Blue Zones project “the island where people forget to die,” the residents of Ikaria, Greece, are free of the chronic diseases that affect other parts of the world. The long lives seen here appear to be the result of a plant-based diet, strong social connections, and lots of movement. One consideration for older adults is physical activity, Chun says. The folks in Ikaria garden, walk to neighbors’ homes, and do yard work.
Yes, women get heart disease. And in some ways, it's worse for them than it is for men. Eight days after Rachel D’Souza-Siebert gave birth via C-section, she felt a terrible pain in her chest and back. She was 28 years old at the time, so she thought she probably couldn't be having heart trouble. But she also knew that after a C-section, women can develop a serious blockage in the lung artery called pulmonary embolism.
Although there are no proven strategies to prevent glaucoma, it is a subject worth discussing—particularly with the current renaissance that glaucoma is experiencing. Louis R. Pasquale, MD, FARVO, professor of ophthalmology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, discussed environmental risk factors for glaucoma and pointed out there are no proven strategies to prevent the disease. He also offered some strategy suggestions.
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".
