I’m a Southern California native. It was all thanks to my dad who migrated here in the 70’s and then later met and married my mom, and also had her migrate to this beautiful area in the 80’s. Life in Southern California is pretty mellow (for the most part), and the weather is just as pleasant. We get about two weeks of crazy hot in August, a couple of days of windy weather we lovingly call the “Santa Ana winds” and then a few weeks of crazy cold (about 50-60 degrees) in January.
This is a sponsored post in partnership with Kaiser Permanente. This month we spoke with Dr. Clifford from our local Kaiser Permanente office and asked him to share with us his favorite tips for healthy travel. He shared with us some things to look out for when staying in a hotel, how to come back from a trip without feeling ill, and what is the number one thing we need to look out for when traveling to a different time zone.
We partnered with Scholastic to share this post! My family and I enjoy story time together. We also love dancing and goofing around. So, when we discovered Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown, we could hardly wait to party with Groovy Joe. From best sellers Eric Litwin and Tome Lichtenheld, comes Groovy Joe. A lovable guitar-strumming dog always ready to rock.
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".
