At age 16, Esther Hirsch wasn’t developing as fast as other girls her age. “I was 90 pounds,” Hirsch said. “I was skin and bones.” At age 12, she was diagnosed with a growth deficiency and prescribed medication. But her symptoms persisted. She had a loss of appetite, couldn’t gain weight and suffered from diarrhea. Originally from Honduras, Hirsch was previously diagnosed with gastritis, stress and bulimia. She began visiting medical centers in Houston and Miami to seek treatment.
Brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors are the third-most common cancers among adolescents and young adults, ages 15-39, according to the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA). Usually, the standard treatment is brain surgery. But a team of doctors at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital last month used magnetic-resonance guided ultrasound to treat a 21-year-old student with a brain tumor, essentially using the heat from high-intensity ultrasound waves to destroy the tumor.
Henry Larkin, a heart attack survivor who suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure, knew something was wrong. He couldn't stand for more than 20 minutes before going numb and falling down. He wanted to go to a doctor, but there was a problem.
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".
