Do you listen to your body? And, if you do, do you do what it asks you to do? That is what we’re going to talk about in today’s Weekday Wisdom. Today we’re covering Question Number 13 … Oooh! On a Friday! … From the quiz that I gave you way back in Episode 40. Question number 13 is:Now I know you listen to your body’s requests for things like ice cream, cookies, potato chips or French fries. Those are easy things. “Oh, yeah, yeah, my body wants French fries,” you’ll tell yourself.
Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, it is highly likely that public speaking scares you. Even if it doesn’t and you are working on honing this skill, speaking in public probably still makes you nervous. But never let that fear or nervousness get in your way. You can become a fearless speaker — or at least one who can courageously face his or her fear — if you keep in mind these four simple concepts. Many people who are afraid of public speaking assume great speakers are born that way.
Do you say no when it’s appropriate to or when you need to? That’s what we’re going to talk about in today’s Weekday Wisdom. Today we’re going to go over Question Number 12 from the quiz I gave you away back in Episode 40. And question number 12 is:I had a lot of challenge around this before. I was a people pleaser for much of my life. And that partly came from the message I took as a young child that I didn’t matter and everybody else mattered more than me.
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".
