“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” ― Ralph Waldo EmersonChoose happiness? Yes, after all these years, I finally realized we have a choice whether to be happy; or not. Sometimes, I forget this option. When life hits its rough spots, it is easy for me to get mired down in the negative circumstances and forget about everything else. When this happens, it just doesn’t feel good. In fact, it is miserable.
Over half way. Radiation treatment number 27 out of 43 is now complete. Bernie Sanders would be proud, because “I can definitely feel the burn.” While it is not real painful, you can definitely feel the heat. I am lucky because while at the Cancer Center, I witness the real heroes: those seeking treatment on gurneys, wheelchairs, walkers and others who can walk. I pray for those in this space.
This Saturday we kick off the fall weather treks with a walk in the woods on the Lake Heritage Trail. The top four reasons you will want to get up and walk with Move this Saturday are:1) Cooler weather is here; it's great to be outside. 2) Walking is good for you and it gets you out of the house. 3) You will meet people you would not meet otherwise. 4) Move walks will take you to cool places that you may not have visited before.
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".
