Yea, no, I was NOT ready for the new semester! I feel like I’m drowning in work already and this was just “syllabus week”. However, I know that everything always seems worse when it’s new and we haven’t settled into routine and the flow of the class(es) yet. I’ll give it a few weeks before I totally freak out…one step at a time, eh? On that note, can the winter be over? It snows like everyday and it’s so cold! Apparently the cold should be abating a bit this weekend, but I still don’t trust it.
Thank you Council for Responsible Nutrition for sponsoring this post. This is #MyWeekSupplemented. Curious if you should take dietary supplements to support your health? They may be just the boost and helping hand you need to help you fill in the gaps that your healthy lifestyle practices may fall short on! We’re all looking for ways to boost our health and keep our bodies in tip-top shape. From eating a healthy balanced diet, consistent exercise, to getting the right amount of sleep every night.
Smooth, creamy, and sweet Slow Cooker Pear Butter that’s so simple to make! Your favorite combination of pears cooked down in the crock-pot for a perfectly sweet and aromatic spread recipe that’s gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and allergy-free! I gave you apple butter, pumpkin butter, and I promised you some pear butter, so I had to deliver before season’s end! I would have posted sooner, but the holidays got in the way and it had to be gingerbread and cookie everything!
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".
