ST. LOUIS – A teenager with special needs gets special help from Variety the Children's Charity St. Louis . It's a high-performance machine with a name to match; but more importantly, it’s a lifesaver for a Maryland Heights teenager. Kathryn Kerckhoff is all smiles while managing the controls on her new power wheelchair. This very futuristic machine—the F5 VS—is her ticket to greater independence, according to her mother, Julie.
ST. LOUIS – Crystal Weaver and Andrew Dwiggins are therapists without lab coats. Weaver was hired to kick of the music therapy program at the St. Louis University Cancer Center in June 2011. As a result, patients visiting find their treatment plan could include music if they choose. “The music is a tool like all those other tools that we utilize in healthcare. We use music to help people be more relaxed, to be more calm,” Weaver said.
Fair St. Louis offers those in attendance the opportunity to be fully engaged in the nation’s patriotic summer ritual. While the celebration draws people from miles away, organizers carefully look for ways to give back to the host city. The Fourth of July celebration, touted as the nation’s biggest birthday party, returns to Forest Park, a crown jewel among regional landmarks. This annual event is managed by the Fair St. Louis Foundation.
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".
