- If you've lived in the South for a while, and you're over 40, you probably have a few sun spots. "We find all ages and all genders are concerned about the brown spots, says Dr. Rutledge Forney, the founder of Dermatology Affiliates in Atlanta. "They're just not cute!" Dr. Forney says the skin discolorations, caused by overactive pigment cells, typically appear on areas of skin that get a lot of sun exposure, like your face, hands, and, in Georgia, your legs.
- The spring pollen season is gone, so why are your eyes still so irritated and itchy? Dr. Kristie Bennett, an Atlanta optometrist and the owner of the Highland Eye Boutique, says the problem may be a condition known as "dry eye." Dry eye can be caused by a lack of tear production, tears that evaporate too quickly, or an imbalance in the tear mixture of water, oils and mucus. Or, Bennett says, the problem might be that fan you’re sleeping under to beat the heat.
- It's been 7 years since Jarrad Turner had to leave the U.S. Army behind, after being badly injured on his second tour in Iraq. But, the 42-year old has never let go of the feeling of brotherhood he found in combat. "When we say we had each other's back, we really meant, I have your back,” Turner says. “Till death." The former medic says his time on the front lines was, in some ways, the best time in his life. “But at the same time, it was also, it was tough,” Turner says.
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".
