Live long and be well—who wouldn’t raise a glass to that? But the ‘be well’ part is crucial: anyone who’s watched an elderly loved one become afflicted with illness will tell you that. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s disease—a type of dementia—is now the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 5 million Americans diagnosed. Not only is memory loss hard for all affected, but it is changing the shape of senior care.
What do you think are some of the best things about St. Louis? The culture and diversity. Basically, we have it all. There’s so much here to satisfy all tastes. I love all of our small town ‘feels’—from Florissant and historic St. Charles to downtown Webster Groves, the Loop and the Central West End. Not to mention our many wineries in Augusta and beyond. There is so much life here. Also, I believe the love of our sports teams unites St. Louis as one great city.
Food insecurity is not just the province of the poor. Falling on hard times can happen to anyone. A job loss, an illness or a broken marriage can mean sudden financial strain, and often, says Cynthia Miller, executive director of Circle of Concern Food Pantry, having enough to eat becomes a challenge. According to the Food and Research Action Center (FRAC), nearly one in four American households with children reports an inability to afford enough food.
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".
