How's that new year's resolution going? Have you quit smoking? Lost weight? Have you been exercising every day? It's time for a reality check, and in fact, Wednesday marks the official "Ditch Your New Year's Resolution Day," (Jan. 17) but human nature being what it is most of us have already ditched ours. Most studies show that a fraction of the resolution-making population (41 percent) keeps its resolutions, in some cases as little as 8 percent of people achieve their New Year's goals.
Abundant sunshine on Monday will give way to snow on Tuesday across the region. Snow is expected to begin on Tuesday morning with accumulation between one to three inches, according to the National Weather Service in State College. Monday's high is expected to be 27. Tuesday high temperatures will hover in the low 30s. Light snow likely will fall between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m., then snow after 1 p.m. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. Winds will be calm.
The two operative words for the next round of winter storms moving into the region: light but steady. Snow is expected to begin falling early before sunrise on Tuesday, and although the National Weather Service in State College says the precipitation should be light, it will be steady and continue throughout the day into Wednesday. Snow should begin tapering off midday Wednesday.
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".
