What do you know about your ancestry? It’s a question a handful of kids in the Papillion-La Vista School District are trying to answer. “Who are we and where are we from?” 5th grade teacher Matthew Meyer asked. On a Wednesday night, just before 7, a handful of sixth graders came back to school for science. It’s also a lesson on personal history. “All I know is my mom was born in Germany on a military base. My dad was born in Kansas City. So I don’t really know much about where I’m from.
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) — Doctors and researchers in Nebraska are helping shape a promising development in the battle against cancer. For months, the grapefruit sized tumor in Amy Cheese’s chest had been going nowhere. The Colorado woman was out of treatment options, with maybe a year to live. Her last move was taking part in a clinical trial at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha. Now she is in complete remission. It has been more than six months with no relapses of the Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
These days – science has armed women with more knowledge than ever before in tracking breast cancer early – when it’s most treatable. Still – each year, more than 200,000 women will be diagnosed with it and 40,000 will die. “So many people have been on this journey with us,” said Cynthia Sturgeon, who left the doctor’s office a decade ago with a breast cancer diagnosis. She turned what could have been life shattering into a life altering sisterhood called Project Pink’d.

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".
