For those of you who have asked, here’s an update on my fractured ankle: I went to a follow-up appointment and my doctor says it’s still not completely healed, but it’s fine and will continue to swell for a year.He told me if I have problems with my hips or knees to come see him as that’s his specialty. Then he asked me how old I am. Surely it was my imagination that he smiled when I told him 65. Did he assume it won’t be long until these hips and knees give out?
It’s that time again, and I love it. It’s time for me to share my favorite Thanksgiving tips and recipes.I think most of us are creatures of habit when it comes to holidays and the food we serve and eat. We have family favorites that are fixed a certain way, and we don’t dare vary far from the expected. Why risk the family’s wrath?For me, less last-minute cooking means less stress. That’s where fixing as much as possible ahead of time comes in. The biggie in this department is the turkey.
Halloween is over and you have leftover candy. Some folks buy trick-or-treat candy they don’t like so they aren’t tempted to eat it. For me, that would be anything sour. But no, I bought chocolate. And since we live on a dead-end street where no young children live, I’m left with all the candy I purchased. Not a bad ending to Halloween.If you have leftover candy, first choice is to eat it. Second choice is to donate it. Third choice is to freeze it for later use, maybe Christmas.
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".
