Marcella Nicotra, who is leading a meditation workshop on Saturday, believes that what meditation teaches is fundamental to healthy living. “Why should we meditate? It’s the same as asking why do we eat… it’s necessary for our survival,” said Nicotra. “Meditation has radically changed my life and how I deal with my anxiety. It has become the most important part of my morning; I need it as much, maybe sometimes more than my morning coffee.
We’re going to do this speed dating style — a few minutes one-on-one with the senior in front of you, then onto the next. Our goal is a lot of smiles, good conversation, and maybe even some connections that last. The event takes place this Wednesday, from 2:30 to 3:30, at Primeplus Norfolk Senior Center in Norfolk, located at 7300 Newport Ave.One of the major contributors toward depression and poor mental health among seniors is a feeling of isolation.
I will be checking out every yoga studio in town, along with three of the regular pop-ups. In most cases the teacher has agreed to spend a few minutes after class with us having tea, or answering questions, or even grabbing a beer. In all cases, I will be doing something like that after class — and I hope you’ll join me! I am doing this because I love yoga. I believe in its healing powers. And I know that it’s one of the most fun, healthy, life-extending activities that exist in this crazy old world.
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".
