Epigenetics. Inherited Family Trauma. What does it mean, and why do we keep hearing those words as we all make a mad dash toward a new decade? Over the last five years, research in the field of epigenetics and Inherited Family Trauma has revealed that, in essence, the emotional traumas of our ancestors can, in fact, live on through us. So, what does that really mean? The most easily digestible version may be this: Think of it as a kind of PTSD. I’ll speak for myself.
It’s 2018 and the year ahead is full of possibility. If there ever was a time to create the reality you so deeply desire and to fulfill your dreams, the time is now. But how, you ask? You’ve listened to the likes of Abraham, Kyle Cease and Mastin Kipp and something still didn’t jive? Don’t fret. Sometimes if we’re feeling stuck, we may just need to shift our perspective, which is why somebody like Marie-Louise der Kinderen is a breath of fresh air.
No doubt 2017 will be one for the books—politics, heated opinions, much brouhaha. And if the country wasn’t already aware of it, the year also reminded us that real-life events can actually become a form of entertainment, consumed en mass, by the public. That those reminders often arrived in overt and often perversely comedic and tragic strokes is best left for another discussion.
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".
