A lot of attention is being turned on the journey of caregiving these days. In fact, there's a growing awareness of the burden of loneliness in the lives of everyday people being caregivers. Yes, we have phones, email and the Internet. Amazingly enough, none of that means you won't be lonely. Especially, as doctors and psychologists are noticing now, with the burden of struggling to do what we have to.One of the greatest areas of living lonely is in being a caregiver to family members.
So, you're over 60 years old. Okay, so do you have $6,000 a month to cover your expenses? Well, how about $4,000? No? Hmmm.As long as you can continue to live in your own fully-paid-for home, maybe your income doesn't matter. You'll have enough to get by, maybe. Though you might struggle, dare I say, a bit.But maybe you’ve never owned your own property. You pay rent and that’s supported by your job. What then? See, here's what I don't understand: Why aren't more people sharing with others?
All families have their secrets. Who really fathered that child. Why Auntie May left home and never returned. What happened to all that money. DNA secrets. Whispered scandals. All pretty normal and, while scandalous, not necessarily harmful.There are secrets, however, which become very damaging and have all kinds of unwanted complications and mental illness is one of them.
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".
