It’s officially that time of year where days disappear into darkness faster than you can blink, cold temperatures hover, skin goes ashy and you feel like you need something to exfoliate your entire soul, let alone your complexion. You might not be able to control the weather, but you can control the space you are in and find new ways to generate some internal heat and maybe incinerate a few calories at the same time!
This past summer, Madalyn Parker, a Michigan web developer tweeted out her boss’s supportive response to her need for a couple of mental health days. The tweet went viral in our collective version of a mouth drop. Most bosses and managers are usually not so understanding. Parker’s tweet generated discussion about the need to destigmatize mental illness and emotional health needs in the workforce and when it is appropriate to take time off. But if you are able to dip out, how should you go about it?
Wellness tourism is booming. According to the Global Wellness Institute, the travel sector accounts for well over $500 billion of the world’s wellness economy. The travel industry has responded to our thirst for enhanced R&R with a surge in dedicated hotels, outdoor adventures, retreats, and festivals. More people than ever, nearly 700 million annually — are traveling with the specific goal of taking charge of improving their physical, mental, and social health.
@jazzedloon@verameat in the East Village or BK should be able to help, and if not, know where you should go. (BTW... this is my way of getting you back to the EV, nice seeing you in the 'hood the other week!) Congrats again on #forbes30under30 👏🏾
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".
