Family caregivers have a lot on their minds. Understandably, changing batteries in home safety devices typically does not top the list. Certainly caregivers can be forgiven for focusing on more immediate priorities. Still, replacing the batteries in home safety devices can be a life saving act. Caregivers – and all of us – can benefit when we connect events with safety habits because it takes away the need to keep track.
Technology is the part of everyone’s life including our senior loved ones. They may not have been early adopters or seek to use technology in the way younger adults have, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t using it to their benefit. Are they using digital therapeutics? Do they (and you) even know what it is all about? Digital therapeutics (DTx for short) is a health process and treatment option that utilizes digital, and often online, health technologies to treat a medical or psychological condition.
Many of us were filled with expectations that we were going to have a mild winter, with primarily rain in most parts of the country. Little snowfall was to come and envelope us in the winter spirit. A mild winter leaves us all wondering when spring might arrive because we are just itching to get to more warm weather activities. Most of us got socked with some winter weather and colder temperatures. Some of us already had spring bulbs breaking their flower heads up through the ground.
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".
