Quick check: What do you use your bed for? Sure, they're made for sleep. But beds are increasingly being used as locations for plenty of other things – watching TV, scrolling through social media, even eating. A new survey, conducted by mattress maker, The Saatva Company, shows just how frequently Americans turn to their beds as the go-to spot for just about everything.
The Dash star highlights some of her favorite booksHouston Dash captain Kealia Ohai is a force on the field. But where does she get her inspiration and grit? Check out her booksheld. "She reads a ton. She reads more than anyone I know," says Ohai's older sister, Megan Cushing. "She's constantly reading, and she reads a lot of motivational books. Any little piece she can take that will push her forward, she wants to read it."
When Dash forward Kealia Ohai prepares to shoot, everything disappears. There's just her, and the ball, and the ball's path to the goal. "I can really calm myself and relax myself and just place the ball like I know how to do it," she explains. "Like I do every day in practice, and not really freak out about what's going on around me." These days, Ohai has plenty of thoughts to push to the side. So far, it's been a lousy season. After a breakout performance last year, her statistics are underwhelming.
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".
