Phyllis Bolle graduated from nursing school in 1946 and went to work at City Hospital on Lafayette Avenue. She worked on the eighth floor, which was for babies and toddlers.Not all of these children were ill. Some were called “boarders.” Some of the boarders were staying at the hospital temporarily. Others had been abandoned and were eligible for adoption. One of the boarders eligible for adoption was Butch. He was born in January 1948. He was born without legs.
During a recent vacation, my wife and I walked into a hip restaurant. I could tell it was hip because kale salad was on the menu. Although I have nothing against kale — and, in fact, would not know a kale if you were to slip one on to my cheeseburger — hip restaurants are not my style. I’m old-school.To that point, I took off my hat as I entered the restaurant. I believe men should wear hats outdoors and remove those hats when they are indoors.On this occasion, I was wearing a cap.
One of the fascinating things about the first World War is the way it seems both modern and medieval. We think of that mostly in terms of the war on land, where men charged into the teeth of modern weaponry and were slaughtered by the thousands. It was also true on the water. In the days before satellites, ships could still get lost.In April 1918, the USS Leviathan, a giant troop transport, was unable to get its bearings in thick fog and U-boat-infested waters off the coast of France.
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".
