Your alarm is set for your 6 a.m. workout, and you responsibly slip into bed exactly eight-and-a-half hours before you have to wake up. But you're still awake a few hours later, thinking obsessively about an argument you had with a friend before moving on to a stressful meeting you have planned with your boss the next day. You finally fall asleep at 3 a.m., only to be woken up by the blaring sound of your alarm a mere three hours later.
While January is typically a predictable month weather-wise (read: very cold), the next few months will likely bring sprinkles of milder days. And if you're someone who keeps her running or hiking practice up no matter what the weather is like, you'll need gear that will keep you warm and safe through days that dip below freezing—and that starts with your jacket. But finding a jacket you can move in that also adapts to every variety of winter weather isn't always easy.
Amy Purdy was 19 when she was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. A rare disease affecting just 4,000 people per year, it's very serious—10 percent of people who contract it die from it, according to the CDC. Purdy was lucky enough to live, but she went into septic shock and lost both her legs in the process. "The doctors initially told me they didn't know if I would ever walk again," she says. "I just remember thinking, well, what if this just hasn't yet been done or figured out?
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".
