Employers are trying to fill more than six million job openings, a record number. The challenge many workers face is not a lack of job opportunity but, rather, the skills to advance their career or make a career move out of a field where jobs are disappearing. While going back to college is an option at any age, taking classes while working a full-time job isn’t easy. That’s one reason why colleges across the country offer continuing education programs for people in the middle of their careers.
The Sterling Heights Senior Center resembled a gym on May 31. That’s because the center marked National Senior Health & Fitness Day 2017 with a variety of exercise classes and healthy living events. Organized as a good health partnership by the Mature Market Resource Center, Senior Health & Fitness Day offered fitness activities for older adults at more than 1,000 locations in the country. The MMRC estimated more than 100,000 older adults participated in various healthy living events.
June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, and the St. Clair Shores Senior Center is among the many organizations shining a light on this widespread problem. On several days throughout the month of June, free sessions focusing on subjects related to elder abuse are set, according to Erin Monahan, assistant coordinator of the center. The conferences are open to the public.
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".
