'He took it upon himself to do the right thing'Norman Heller was a 35-year-old with a family back home in the States when, "without thinking," he came to the rescue of a wounded soldier in Vietnam in July 1968. Forty-nine years after that heroic action, Heller was awarded the Bronze Star, with "V" Device for valor, in front of a packed house and countless veterans at the Brevard County Commission chambers in Viera. Tears glistened in Heller's eyes a time or two as others spoke about his service.
Dementia can can steal my mother's memories. It cannot erase the bond we share. My favorite woman in the world and I talk, often, on the phone. We don’t have real conversations anymore, the kind of rambling, long, laughter-filled chats we used to have that most often ended with, "I love you." At 84, the sweet dynamo I still call Mommy is dealing with the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Her doctor monitors her health, closely.
In the hallway, 92-year-old bridge instructor M.F. Vaughn chats with Judy Brandon, a 61-year-old baby boomer. On a stage inside the auditorium, to the strains of the hit song "Moves Like Jagger," women from their 40s to 80s are, well, moving, in a Zumba class. Freedom 7 Senior Community Center is 30 years old this year. It's celebrating Wednesday with an open house.
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".
