Confession: There have been many, many times that I've skipped out on a sweat sesh solely based off of the fact that I did not want to put on pants. Am I proud of this? Not exactly. But pants suck, and the thought of putting them on really doesn't motivate me to go do burpees in any way, shape, or form. But fortunately for me, ClassPass live stream workouts are coming in 2018, which not only means I don't have to put pants on when I exercise, but I don't ever have to leave my house, either.
With Christmas and Hanukkah right around the corner, you might suddenly feel bombarded with an array of fitness-related gift guides, all suggesting the perfect presents for your gym rat of a BFF. And while I don't doubt that all of those suggestions will please any exercise enthusiast, there may be a tiny voice in the back of your head that really wants you to go the extra mile this year.
Every time Mercury goes into retrograde, I feel like the consequences get a significantly worse. Like, that little demon planet runs the damn show about four times a year, yet each retrograde has me feeling exponentially more anxious, unstable, and out of balance than the last. If you feel me on a spiritual level, you're probably wondering, does Mercury in retrograde affect your mood? Seriously, we all need some answers ASAP.
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".
