Chef Jeff Henderson’s life trajectory wasn’t always pointed toward the kitchen—though he has manned the stoves at the Bellagio and the Ritz-Carlton in Las Vegas. Coming from a poor home with a single mother, he began his adult life with drug dealing and a nine-year stint in prison. But during his time behind bars, he discovered cooking, and his life turned around, eventually leading to TV fame and a best-selling book.
U.S. employees left 662 million days of vacation unused last year—a third of which was completely forfeited at yearend—according to Project: Time Off. With summer 2017 coming to a close, are your vacation days on track to meet the same demise? P:TO, a coalition started by the U.S. Travel Association, encourages people to take earned vacation as a way to improve personal well-being, happiness, and relationships, as well as professional performance.
Using video, print ads, a quiz, and other tactics, the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE initiative and the Ad Council are encouraging at-risk individuals to undergo a new early-detection lung cancer screening. “The reason that the lung association is doing this is that lung cancer is the number-one cancer killer of both men and women in the U.S.,” said Jeff Seyler, ALA Executive Vice President, Northeast Region.
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".
