ST. LOUIS - The biggest hospital in the state of Missouri has reached a major milestone. Barnes-Jewish Hospital performed its 5,000th kidney transplant, and the recipient was Jerry Walton, a gutsy grandpa and veteran who's still skydiving at 75. When Jerry's grandson, 9-year-old Ryan Wallace, learned his paw-paw needed a new kidney, he called a family meeting to announce he'd donate one of his. "I said since my kidneys were a lot younger than pawpaw's, I wanted to give mine to him," said Ryan.
One year ago, a member of the 5 On Your Side team had his life changed forever. Steve Harris, the director of the 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscast, started at KSDK in 2015. At the time, he was suffering from a herniated disc in his spine and things were slowly getting worse. “I can remember distinctly, him walking a little bit slower and then he came in with a cane,” said KSDK Sports Director Frank Cusumano.
ST. LOUIS - Premature babies are prevalent in the United States, with one in every 10 children born before 37 weeks. For African-American pregnant women, the chance of having a preterm birth is much higher. African-American women have a 48 percent higher chance of having a preemie than any other race in our country. While some research points to socio-economic factors, researchers often stress it only plays a part in a fraction of African American births.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
