Millions of people who choose an in-network hospital for emergency room care are still being treated by an out-of-network doctor. And that can lead to much higher bills. More than one-fifth of emergency room patients who attended an in-network hospital were cared for by out-of-network physicians, who are allowed to charge higher payments than in-network doctors, according to a working paper by Yale researchers recently distributed by the National Bureau of Economic Research.
Before May, it wasn’t uncommon to find me with a stack of tissues or rubbing my face to alleviate facial pressure. And that was on good days. It seems like an innocuous ailment, but it is one that affects the quality of life of millions of Americans. “Chronic rhinosinusitis” or sinusitis, the inflammation of the cavities within nasal passages that often results in sinus infections, is truly debilitating. There would be days I felt so sick I had to stay home.
The last solar eclipse to cross the entire United States, from Washington to Florida, was in 1918, but it’ll be back in less than a month. On Aug. 21, the “Great American Eclipse” — when the moon passes between the sun and the earth and either fully or partially blocks the sun — will have Americans standing in the shadow of the moon for about three minutes, depending where they are. This solar eclipse got its name because the United States is the only country that will see it.
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".
