No matter our age, we want to be healthy now and stay healthy in the future. As family caregivers of aging parents, grandparents, and other family members, we can help facilitate a healthy lifestyle to improve our senior loved ones’ health, especially when they are faced with chronic diseases. When they are present, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and other chronic diseases have no cure, only treatment to manage them. Preventing them from occurring is a good goal to have.
Is the state in which you live helping you stay healthy or perhaps contributing to your inability to be healthier? Did you realize that within each state there are services and amenities that can improve your health? The opposite is also true – lack of the very same services and amenities can negatively impact your health outcomes. We are all trying to become healthier but you may be surprised that mortality rates in specific areas of the US are on the rise.
Robots have gone from the pages of science fiction into every room of the home (yes, even the bathroom). At CES 2018 we encountered hundreds of robots in all sorts of shapes, from simple little boxes to cute human-like forms. Robots intended for home use can be small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, nearly adult-sized, and pretty much any size in between. Some are inactive, while others can dance, with robots having all sorts of ranges of motion.
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".
