- Two-year-old Kinsley Keeling lives like she's making up for lost time. "Her enjoyment of life is so pure, and so exuberant, all the time," says Mary Beth Keeling, Kinsley's mother. Keeling says it's almost as if her youngest daughter can sense, at her tender age that this is her second chance. "It's surreal," says her mother. "And, it's almost like that chapter of her life is closed. And, that fear, it's nice to not live with that every day."
- About 30 million American adults have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. And the CDC says about 96 million are "pre-diabetic," meaning their blood sugar levels are too high. For years, experts have assumed that once a person was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, it was a done deal; the only option was to manage the illness. But a couple of small studies show that dramatic dietary changes may help some type 2 diabetics normalize their blood sugar levels.
- At Highland Eye Boutique in Atlanta's Virginia Highland neighborhood, optometrist Dr. Kristie Bennett sometimes gets an up close look at what can happen when contact lens wear goes wrong. "Usually when people have infections, they're in quite a bit of pain and discomfort," Dr. Bennett says. The most common complication of contact lens wear is keratitis, an inflammation of the cornea, the clear dome over the colored part of the eye.
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".
