There is a magic that happens when we spend time in nature. Science is proving it with studies showing the effects on both our mental and physical health and Deborah Calmeyer told me recently how the wilderness changed her life. I was so moved by Deborah’s story that I interviewed her recently on a call from Los Angeles. Calmeyer was born in Zimbabwe and told me how at six she began swimming with a tame hyena named “DJ” in the family pool.
Ayurveda is an ancient science that most of us know very little about. After spending a month in India this year and exploring the benefits of Ayurveda myself, I sat down in Los Angeles with Shrankhla Holecek a long-time Ayurvedic expert who has over 15 years of extensive training and understanding in the therapeutic benefits of botanicals - especially as they apply to Ayurveda.
Last week, I was invited to Dubai to cover the 2018 World Government Summit. WGS, as it’s known, is a global gathering of thinkers, innovators and policymakers designed to explore how governments can best leverage technology to solve the world’s biggest challenges. WGS is a uniquely Emirati creation — the UAE hosts the only Ministry of Happiness and Tolerance, and is relentlessly committed to using technology and innovation to improve its citizens’ lives.
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".
