From time to time, our center does group outings together and recently we decided to support the wonderful people at Saratoga Bridges and participate in the Great Pumpkin Challenge in Saratoga. It was a great event for all of the our members who participated. In particular, a couple chose the event to run their first 5K. While that may not be a big deal to many of you, it was something they’ll never forget. You see, for them, it was as big a challenge as climbing Mount Everest.
In my role of helping my clients with their nutrition I’ve found some common issues that most of them face. Let’s face it. There’s a lot of information out in the media, some good, some bad, some downright false, but one thing that I think most people would agree on is that we could eat better than we do. And when I have that conversation with folks it usually leads to a discussion on what exactly does it mean to eat “better”? The truth is, there is no one set answer.
Recently I was talking with someone who wanted to work with me on â€œGetting Her Life Back.â€? Letâ€™s call her Cindy. Cindy is and amazing woman. Sheâ€™s an executive at a local company, won several awards in her industry and has seen success at every level in her life. Oh yeah, sheâ€™s also raising three kids. And like so many others, Cindy expressed to how she struggles to keep her fitness on track. As she said, â€œLife gets in the way and next thing you knowâ€Śâ€?
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".
