Have you ever wondered why particular sights, sounds and tactile sensations feel so satisfying or relaxing? Or how impossibly mundane activities like the light sound of a computer keyboard typing, pages turning or hair brushing can sometimes induce tingles on your head or “the shivers”? It is likely that what you are experiencing is ASMR or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response to these stimuli.
It may seem as though schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression have vastly different presenting characteristics. However, as researchers progress in investigating these conditions, they are uncovering more commonalities than you might initially anticipate. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that is characterized by a broad range of unusual behaviors which cause profound disruption in the lives of people suffering from the condition, as well as in the lives of the people around them.
“Hello,” I apprehensively greet the C.N.A. preparing to measure my vitals. “Would you mind taking a blind weight for me? It should already be in my chart.”“A what?” She looks at me blankly. “Weigh me backwards. It’s marked in my chart I’m to be weighed backwards at each office visit. It’s too emotionally triggering for me to know my weight,” I explain to her. “Uh, sure. But…I mean, you’re so thin, you don’t have anything to worry about!” She chuckles lightly.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
