LUTZ, Fla. (WFLA) — Anything goes at goat yoga, a fun craze taking over the nation that rolls out the mat for the friendly farm animals. “Goats are very friendly, they’re actually funny. They make you laugh, which means they make you relax. Yoga is all about breathing and grounding yourself, and being in touch with nature and peace, so it just goes hand in hand,” said Kelly Diedring, who welcomes namaste yoga instructors to hold classes in her sprawling backyard farm in Lutz.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — She was homeless, and a high school dropout. Jianna Figuerao thought she had hit a dead end in life, but soon she found a second chance. “I was in a low point. I felt like I didn’t have the support from my family, so I left home. And at that point, I was on my own trying to work full time, make money in order for me to stay in a home,” Figuerao said. Desperate for a second chance, Jianna discovered Catapult Academy.
LUTZ, Fla. (WFLA) — A Lutz woman is setting an example one step at a time. Shirley Hingson, 80, is in year five of battling stage four ovarian cancer. Her treatments worsened her arterial disease and she lost her leg. Trying to find events to work through her pain, Hingson decided to give the Westcoast Brace & Limb Fun Walk a try, in hopes of being inspired by others who share similar struggles. As it would turn out, Hingson was the inspiration.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
