Did you promise to start exercising, eating healthy, and saving money in 2018? If so, you’re not alone, because nearly everyone makes those three a priority on their resolution lists. So, how’s it going in week two of the resolution season? Have you managed to stay the course, or have you capsized, and already abandoned the ship? Either way, don’t trip — just get back up and try again.
Are you feeling more emotional these days? Are you feeling physically and emotionally unmotivated to exercise, get work done, or just stay on task? If so, you’re not alone, and no, you’re not just imagining things, either. The winter blahs — or, to be technical, “seasonal sadness” — are real. Many people (me included) feel especially tired, sluggish, and more moody this time of the year.
Did you stuff yourself like a turkey on Thanksgiving? If so, you’re not alone, and if you’re a typical American, you consumed about 4,500 calories last Thursday. But there are practical solutions on shedding those extra unwanted pounds and staying in shape before the New Year and this is the prefect time to renew your commitment to fitness and healthy eating. Think of it as a fitness preemptive strike.
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".
