With January less than a month away, chances are you’re beginning to think about those New Years resolutions and what you’re hoping to achieve in 2018. But did you know that a staggering 80 percent of all New Years resolutions fail by the second week of February? That’s not surprising, given research published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, which cited that it takes, on average, more than two months to form a habit.
Whether you were up all night dancing at a friend’s wedding, worked a 12-hour shift on your feet, or just wore a pair of reasonably high heels to work, there’s a good chance that your feet are feeling it. “The feet, especially the sole of the foot, is innervated by thousands of free nerve endings,” says Cameron Yuen, D.P.T., C.S.C.S., senior physical therapist at BeSpoke Treatments in New York City.
If you love running, there’s not much that will stop you from getting outdoors to pound the pavement — except the cold winter weather. Yes, you could stay toasty and get some miles in on the treadmill, but it’s just never as satisfying as breathing in fresh air and feeling the wind against you. But all that changes once sub-20-degree temps roll in.
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".
