Looking around the house, I cannot help but notice that we are moving. Long before a single box has been packed, my wife is looking to sell, donate or throw away everything we aren’t taking with us. When I come downstairs to make coffee in the morning, bin liners are lying in drifts across the kitchen and the worktop is uncluttered. “Where is the coffee machine?” I ask. There is an awkward silence. “You’re always complaining about it,” she says.
My wife and I are lying side by side in bed, in Peter Jones. A sales assistant looms over us, like a care worker attending to two invalids. “It’s all natural materials, 100% British wool,” she says. “It’s too soft,” my wife says. “Are you crazy?” my wife says. The sales assistant explains the mattress is a hybrid model for demonstration purposes: I am on the firm side. “OK, switch,” my wife says. She stands up and I slide over.
‘Wellbeing’ is one of the biggest buzzwords of the last decade. While for some this means doing yoga or following a wheat-free diet, there’s more to it, particularly in a workplace context.With Access EAP recording a 15 per cent increase in people taking stress leave and unapproved absences from work in 2016, there is growing awareness among Australian businesses of the need to address staff wellbeing in a structured way, alongside existing health, safety and risk management strategies.
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".
