Earlier this week I had the honor to interview Irma Jaime, a health educator for the Center for Healthy Living for Kaiser Permanente Orange County. During the interview she shared tips and resources on how to get started on ways to start living a healthy lifestyle. I’m all about working on living a healthy lifestyle – and that’s one of the many reasons why I choose to keep my health insurance with Kaiser Permanente.
We love visiting Knott’s Berry Farm throughout the year because we make so many cool memories. It’s all part of the Seasons of Fun that the park has going on, and we’re happy to be partnering with them to share a few of our favorite highlights this year – and we’re also giving one lucky reader FOUR KNOTT’S BERRY FARM SEASON PASSES!!!

The chiclets have loved the “Bruce” series since “Mother Bruce” was first released last year. Last month, the last one, “Bruce’s Big Move” by Ryan T. Higgins, dropped and the chiclets are all about it – so huge thanks to Disney-Hyperion for sending us a copy!!! Yes, it’s made for chiclets ages 3-5 years old, but my 6 and 9 year olds have read it over and over. And it’s one book that never goes into the donation pile.
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".
