Update: On Jan. 18, 2018, the U.S. House passed a stopgap measure that would fund the government for four more weeks but that would also re-authorize CHIP for another six years. The U.S. Senate must now vote to pass the bill, and it must be signed into law by President Donald Trump, before the government shuts down at midnight tonight. Update: On Dec. 21, Congress passed a budget measure that included $ 3 billion to keep CHIP funded through March.
To understand how ridiculous the latest health trend of drinking “raw” water really is, look to Yemen, where untreated, “raw” water has caused the worst outbreak of Cholera in history, killing more than a million people. Still, many in Silicon Valley are swigging it, paying the hefty price of $ 36.99 or more for 2 gallons. They believe unfiltered and untreated water is healthier since this water could contain essential minerals, no chemicals and ‘good’ bacteria and probiotics.
Editor’s note: Wasser announced on Monday, Jan. 15, 2018, that her other leg had to be amputated due to Toxic Shock Syndrome. Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is in the news with model Lauren Wasser’s advocacy work. She lost her leg from TSS and is now raising awareness about this rare risk of tampons. For those of us who remember the 1980s, we first heard about TSS back when multiple young women got severely sick and even died.
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".
