iStockHalloween is my favorite Holiday. It's been my favorite holiday ever since I first came to the U.S. as an 8-year-old. These days I still love to dress up but, to be honest, what I love even more about Halloween is all of those delicious treats.

This year, I'm really obsessed with dulce de leche and looking for ways to incorporate it more into my baking.
PixabayI am someone who does NOT enjoy exercise, not even when all it takes is 10 minutes a day. But I'm also someone, like many of you, who recognizes that exercise is important to our overall health. But that's not the only way to tell if you are being healthy or not. While a daily yoga practice or running outside can be great for your physical health, there's also your mental health to worry about, which is why it's crucial to devote 15 minutes a day to getting healthier.
The holidays are just around the corner, and that means lots of work parties and family get-togethers. And where there's a good party, then there's good booze. It's not unusual to overdo it around the holidays or any other time of the year, for that matter. Who hasn't been in a situation where they had a few too many drinks at a work event, when grabbing cocktails with the girls or simply with your family? Hangovers aren't fun, but they're also a fact of life.
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".
