I have applied for tons and tons of #jobs. Now, I’m reading #books in my spare time. Medical #cannabis patients with #MS, #PTSD or #TBI (traumatic brain injury) might find my review of “The Brain’s Way of Healing” especially interesting. Check it out. I’ve enjoyed reading this book the past few days. A really big word that I like to use a lot is neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to repair itself, to even find new routes around damaged synapses to execute functions and tasks.
Should One Out of Four Gay Men Take PrEP? The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finally has come out and said what HIV prevention specialists already know: There still are whole lot of people in America who could benefit from Truvada as PrEP, the once daily pill to prevent HIV. In its Nov. 26 edition of Vital Signs, the CDC estimated that about one in four sexually active gay and bisexual men should be offered PrEP.
My Keurig pooped out the other day. And it a moment of disgust, I discarded it. And decided I’m giving up coffee altogether too. So, I’ve gone four days. The pounding headaches finally have subsided. And overall, I feel WAY better with caffeine out of my life. Just as I have every time I have given it up, this being maybe the fourth or fifth time for me. I told dispensary wellness consultant Devon at NTI in Milan the other day that cannabis and coffee is about like beer and cocaine.
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".
