If you’re like me, you enjoy a variety of workouts to compliment one an another. My two favorite activities are running and yoga. I have found that a good balance of both allows for me to avoid running injuries. Yoga helps me build strength and flexibility, while running allows me to enjoy the outdoors and work my heart. Since running makes me very tight, especially in my hips, I sometimes need a yoga practice that is focused specifically on those body parts that are worked during a run.
A 16-year-old from Greenwich has developed a revolutionary new way of using Twitter to poll data and to attempt to predict this year's presidential election. Peter Kazazes, a Brunswick School junior, has essentially created a modern-day alternative to traditional polling methods. By using a self-developed algorithm, he is able to analyze Tweets for their sentiment, therefore revealing the positive or negative reactions to a particular issue by Twitter users.
Last Saturday, a friend and I drove back to Greenwich to join in on the One Run for Boston, a cross-country relay race that honors the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013. We nearly missed the late-night run because we got the dates confused. And for a moment, I almost wished we had. I don’t like running with people. I’m slower than most, I am out of breath because I don’t know how to breathe, and I sweat. A lot.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
