EAST BRUNSWICK – Nearly three years ago, Dayna Stroumtsos shut herself off from the world. Angry and depressed, Stroumtsos, now 27, became a recluse, locking herself away in her Montgomery home. Her part-time job, her health and her daily life suffered. At her lowest point, she spent much of the day lying in bed playing video games, refusing therapy. She frequently had outbursts of anger. "That was my comfort zone," Stroumtsos said. "It was easier."
READINGTON – Veterans need to look no further than their local QuickChek. A market leader in food services dedicated to serving its communities, QuickChek raised $155,000 in just five weeks in its continuing efforts to honor those who serve our nation. All of the funds raised will stay in local areas to help support local veterans.
EDISON – Dedicated to helping veterans and wounded warriors lead higher-quality lives, JFK Medical Center's Dr. Heikki Uustal heads a Congress-funded research panel that approves projects related to amputation, prosthetic and orthotic technologies. The advancement in this type of technology has become necessary as more veterans and wounded soldiers are returning from war alive, having survived amputations that would have previously killed them.
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".
