With the growing rate of American young adults identifying as “nones” — nonaffiliation with a particular religion or faith — the message of authentic encounter and evangelization is more important than ever before. According to a report conducted last year by the Public Religion Research Institute, the Catholic Church has suffered the largest decline — about 10 percent. While a third (31 percent) of Americans were raised in a Catholic home, only 1 in 5 (21 percent) still identify as Catholic.
As the Inland population ages, the number of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia patients are growing. Recent strides – from a new marketing push, a new office and new partnerships – will help raise awareness of the disease and bring resources and a sense of community to Inland patients. Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are exhibited in slow, progressive changes in everyday activities — from remembering directions, to withdrawing from social events.
In a twist of coincidence, Helen Wall has turned 100 the same year that her century plant has bloomed. And like the plant – which blossomed this past spring and has sprouted to be nearly as tall as Wall’s Riverside home – Helen is thriving. “I feel great,” she said of her age. “I’m not an old lady.”Sure, the century plant is a misnomer; it actually blooms every 10 to 30 years before it dies, according to Gardenia.net.
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".
