As one who loves to, start my day with a workout, I’ve come across many awkward and uncomfortable instances at the gym. From BO issues to swiping squat racks, I was at the gym last week, and a quick glance to my right had me beaming (and not from the workout endorphins). My friends and I that frequent the gym always find ourselves swapping stories of different encounters and inconveniences that we frequently come across. Thankfully, most of these things can be solved by quick notes on etiquette.
Fall marks the season filled with many comforting attributes. It’s the time of thanksgiving, gorgeous colors, sweater weather, pumpkin-spice-everything, and many other aesthetically pleasing features (that we all proudly love to showcase on our Insta-feeds). Falling right at the end of the month is, Halloween, and believe it not, there more to it than just creative costumes and candy! For my millennials, I argue that October 31st has become the ultimate “Throwback Thursday”.
This week we are back with another profile from a great friend of mine friend and fellow member of Her Campus SFU! Take some time reading up about this friendly face who can be spotted giving a helping hand all over campus. Fun Fact: I went bungee jumping this summer! My friend was going away for 2 years, and I asked him what he wanted to do before he left. Bungee jumping it was. Hanna: I first heard about the club from you and Emerald (another editorial team member at Her Campus SFU).
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".
