We found only one reference to the special needs of seniors in the conference schedule for CES® 2018 — and this year that’s a good thing. During the early years that Senior Care Corner® covered CES, we saw little to no mention of seniors, as if technology innovation did not apply to them, nor the role of family caregivers.
How often does someone ask you how you are? Certainly, people ask you how your senior loved one has been, if they are doing well, are they healthy and happy? Oftentimes friends and families don’t even think to ask family caregivers how they are holding up. But family caregivers may need to be asked. Getting some support for your caregiving journey, even if it just a simple “how are you doing?”, may be enough to keep you going some days. Caring for our senior loved ones is not a burden.
It is National Diabetes Month which means it’s a good time to learn more about the potential effect of diabetes on many of us. The number of people who are affected but remain unaware that they have prediabetes or diabetes, who are missing treatment opportunities, and potentially endangering their own health continues to be a staggering number. Diabetes is a disease that usually begins slowly and without warning. Diabetes is a disease that inhibits your body’s ability to use blood sugar (glucose).
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".
