In the cold of early March everything feels brittle and ready to snap — but that’s especially true of your bones if you haven’t been exercising regularly throughout the winter. “A lot of people just stop exercising and that’s terrible,” said Dr. Jodi Friedman, medical director at the Center for Healthy aging at Northern Dutchess Hospital. “When spring comes they’re going to be weaker.”And, if you’re over age 30, there is little you can do to make your bones actually stronger.
It’s not tough to make new year resolutions, but it is a challenge to stick with them. In fact some experts say the feeling of failure after breaking a resolution is worse than not making one at all. But some people have chosen a different way to observe the new year. In the Hudson Valley the ways to celebrate the new year are as varied as our residents.
When President Franklin D. Roosevelt won an unprecedented fourth term in 1944, the world was in chaos. The war was raging, rations were a way of life, factories were desperate for workers. Roosevelt’s steadying ways reassured the American people who did not want to change leadership during such tumult, but within six months he was dead. This time in office is revealingly captured in David Woolner’s “The Last 100 Days: FDR at War and at Peace,” which is being released Dec. 12.
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".
