ST. LOUIS - The ALS Association will raise buckets of ice to support families challenged by the disease. The Third Annual Ice Bucket Challenge will fund research and other resources needed by ALS patients. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as ALS or "Lou Gehrig Disease") is a progressive fatal neurological muscular disease and is hard to predict how quickly the disease will advance. “It's tough. I've been able to come to grips with it," he said.
ST. LOUIS - Not everyone has the support needed to build strong families. Those who require a little guidance can get the help they need from Epworth Children and Family Services. Former client Princess McDaniels found Epworth at the right time. Her son was an infant when she stumbled across Epworth’s teen drop-in center in Normandy. “I was just getting out of high school and I went to UMSL, it’s right down the street, and I used to ride the bus back and forth,” said McDaniels.
ST. LOUIS - Every day, at least seven people die in house fires in the US. First responders and the American Red Cross want that number dropped to zero. Both agencies stress the importance of working smoke detectors. “Three out of five related deaths occur where there was no working smoke alarm. One over 2,100 deaths annually related to fires in the home,” said Captain Leon Whitner of St. Louis Fire Department.
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".
