Gosh, I just can’t take this. I just can’t help but cry, and write. Advocacy is hard – rewarding, but hard on the soul. I meet so many people online while doing advocacy for rare disease conditions. I help connect people with communities that support their conditions and doctors that treat them. But sometimes we lose these amazing rare warriors to their battles. No matter how often you see it happen, it’s heartbreaking every time. Someone failed them. That’s what it boils down to. Someone failed them.
Ever notice that you start to feel tired pretty much the same time each night—and feel ready to wake up at a set hour, too? You can thank your body's clock, or your circadian rhythm, for those sleep-wake cues. But your shuteye isn't the only thing this clock controls. In fact, it can have pretty far-reaching effects on other aspects of your health, too. Here's what's going on, says Michael McCarthy, M.D., a staff psychiatrist at the VA San Diego Healthcare System.
“Every morning at 5 a.m. I get up and I come here to my iron paradise," he said in the video. "There’s over 40,000 pounds of twisted steel, sex appeal, and heartache. A lot of heartache—mainly my own." The Rock said he's grateful to the hundreds of people in his crew for always setting up his “Iron Paradise," especially since he admittedly called himself a "pain in the ass" since he has to have the energy flow just right when it comes to the equipment placement.
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".
