Dentists, physicians and eye doctors will offer tooth extractions, eyeglasses on demand, and more free of charge at the California CareForce health clinic set for Sept. 22-24 at Cal Expo in Sacramento. Millions of California residents still cannot afford health insurance or don’t have the money for the copayments, deductibles and other fees required by their policies, even though the number of insured continues to increase in California.
The world’s smallest pacemaker made its debut in the Sacramento region this summer when Dr. Mark Bowers implanted one of the slender, inch-long devices directly inside the heart of electrical contractor Eugene Gini at the Alex G. Spanos Heart & Vascular Center at Mercy General Hospital. Gini was an ideal candidate, Bowers said, because he belongs to a small subset of patients whose slow heart rate can be adjusted by stimulating just one chamber of the heart.
Doctors at Sutter Medical Center prepared Baby Leni’s mom for the worst when he arrived on May 9, four months early at her Sacramento home and weighing just 1 pound and 4.5 ounces. As paramedics scrambled from a nearby firehouse, Leni’s great-aunt tied a shoe lace around his umbilical cord and his mom Chastity said she looked at the tiny, featureless infant in the palm of her hand and thought, “Oh, my God, please live.
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".
