ALBERT LEA — When Mayo Clinic vice president Dr. Bobbie Gostout emerged from the back room to address the Freeborn County Board, she was greeted by a homemade sign that said, "We like our ice cream and inpatient care in Albert Lea" held aloft by Minnesota Nurses Association's Jay Armstrong.That frosty reception set the tone Tuesday morning at a packed public meeting where Mayo's honesty and communication skills were repeatedly challenged by citizens and public officials.
Mayo Clinic researchers published a study Monday that offers new hope for patients suffering from long QT syndrome, a potentially-fatal heart rhythm condition.Sudden cardiac death and episodes of fainting and seizures are significantly lower than previously thought when patients are diagnosed and treated at a speciality center dedicated to the treatment of genetic heart rhythm diseases, according to the 16-year study just published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.The...
A baseball signed by New York Yankees legend Lou Gehrig is finally home — with a story to tell.Mayo Clinic has opened a new display at Heritage Hall, its free museum staffed by volunteers, to display a baseball Gehrig signed for a Rochester boy in 1939 just before he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which is often called Lou Gehrig's disease.That boy — Rochester native Bob Tierney — cherished the artifact for decades before selling it to Rochester businessman Andy...
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".
