Carbs and sugar do make us pile on the pounds, but they might not be the only factors at play. Carbs and sugar do make us pile on the pounds, but they might not be the only factors at play. FOR the most part we've been taught that if you're fat it's your fault. Go for a run. Put down the sugar. And stop eating so many carbs. But all over the world people are struggling with their weight. In the US more than two-thirds of adults are now overweight or obese.
But all over the world people are struggling with their weight. In the US more than two-thirds of adults are now overweight or obese. And this happened so quickly, in the span of just a few decades, that it has made scientists wonder if it really is our fault that we’re fat. Perhaps there is something else at play? To help answer this question, my podcast Science Vs spoke to Dr Giles Yeo, a geneticist at University of Cambridge in the UK.
Alas! The heavens have ripped open. Or, a dying star is shedding its gaseous clothes in the final moments of its long life. The stunning colours represent different gases: red represents nitrogen, green reflects hydrogen, and blue is oxygen. In around 5 billion years or so, our own Sun will die in a similar, glorious fashion. See part 4, ‘Lord of the Rings’. Next Thursday it’s part 6, ‘The living delta’.
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".
