Hang time is the length of time a basketball player stays suspended in the air after jumping. Use this exercise to lighten up your landings and improve your relationship with gravity. Start in a kneeling position at the back of your yoga mat, sitting on your heels with the inner walls of your legs meeting. Place your palms on the ground, shoulder distance apart and slightly in front of your kneecaps. Rooting the hands, lift your hips and hop your shins forward.
Does your balance wax and wane during Half Moon Pose? If so, why not try this yoga classic with the assistance of some props? In this supported version of the pose, a wall lends support and builds spatial awareness while a yoga block bridges the gap between fingers and floor. Set yourself up with your back-body positioned a leg’s distance from the wall. Stand with your feet parallel, side-by-side, and pointing into the centre of the room.
Though they say it takes two to tango, it only takes one to do this week’s tango-inspired move, the Ocho Plank. Derived from the Spanish word for the number eight, the Ocho figure has dancers draw a swirling figure-eight on the ground with their feet. Use the Ocho Plank to stabilize your shoulders and strengthen the core. Come onto all fours with your hands placed shoulder-distance apart and knees directly under your hips.
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".
