Leticia Aranda is talking with a woman about type 2 diabetes—specifically, the woman’s risk for developing the disease. What may seem like a casual conversation between friends (the two women, after all, live in the same Colorado Springs community) is actually shoptalk for Aranda. As a community health worker with the American Diabetes Association (ADA), Aranda is charged with spreading the word about diabetes and prediabetes to the people in her community.
Safety First: Talk to your doctor before making any big changes to your exercise plan. If you had a dollar for every time you’ve been reminded of the health benefits of physical activity—how it improves blood glucose levels, lowers your risk of heart disease, boosts your mood, and helps you lose weight and keep it off—you just might be reading this on your own private island somewhere in the Caribbean. So why do so many of us struggle to make exercise a regular part of our lives?
Shivatra Talchai wasn’t the only researcher in Domenico Accili’s lab at Columbia University Medical Center who was working toward a cure for diabetes, but at 25, she was certainly the youngest. Nicknamed “Noi,” which translates roughly—and appropriately—to “junior” in her native Thai, she had yet to complete her doctorate in metabolic biology, but that didn’t stop her from approaching Accili as a graduate student in 2004.
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".
