GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - This week in our Real Men Wear Gowns campaign we're talking about testicular cancer. “Testes cancer is a disease of younger men. Peak incidence is of those men under the age of 35,” says Dr. Laurence O'Connor, a Urologist at Health Partners. O’Connor says about 7,500 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer every year in the U.S. He says men should be doing self-exams starting around the age of 21 to check for lumps.
GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - In this week's Real Men Wear Gowns story we're talking about prostate cancer. It's one of the leading causes of cancer death among men in the U.S.“Prostate cancer is one of those problems that if you have symptoms, it's already too late to cure it,” says Dr. Laurence O’Connor, urologist with HealthPartners. He says about 210,000 men are diagnosed every year with prostate cancer. Dr. O’Connor says men should start getting screened every year once they hit 55.
COKATO, Minn. - Philip Martinson is now resting at his Cokato home after back surgery and a week in the hospital. “I busted one vertebrae in three spots,” Philip says. “It's hard to consider this a blessing, but it is, because it could be worse.”Philip fell about 12 feet while trying to set up his tree stand on Oct. 27. He was attempting to adjust a strap when he fell. “All of the sudden I hit the ground,” he remembers.
Beautiful time of the year to focus on what we’re thankful for. We all have things we’re working on, things we wish looked different in our life - things we’re striving for. But let’s celebrate the progress we’ve made and all the amazing people we’ve met along the journey. 🦃
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".
