Every Monday we tap an industry expert for little-known tips that only insiders know. This week, Gabrielle Bernstein—yoga and spiritual guru and 'The New York Times' bestselling author of 'Miracles Now'—reveals that it is possible to meditate and find some zen even when things seem busier and more stressful than ever. Here's how. 1. Take one minute to breathe. "You have a minute to spare, right? One minute a day spent in stillness can change your life.
"I got my period on my 10th birthday. Happy birthday to me, right? By 13, I was on birth control after being diagnosed with dysmenorrhea and menorrhagia (which lead to a short bout of anemia). By 20, I was on a multitude of painkillers, had tried every birth control under the sun, countless ultrasounds and testsand& had already experience one ruptured ovarian (fluid) cyst in high school.
Leave it to the Kaiser of fashion to figure out a way for us to get our kicks—literally—while dressed to the nines. During Chanel's spring/summer 2014 Haute Couture show earlier today, we saw Karl Lagerfeld's typical array of pastels, tweeds, and romantic textures, all with the whimsically sporty addition of sneakers. Chiffon gowns and tennis shoes? Why not.
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".
