While the heart is a common metaphor for love, it was heart failure that brought one local couple together. Seven years ago, Taylor Givens and Collin Kobelija came as close to death as possible on the same day and in the same place. “One week I was doing fine, the next week I was in total heart failure,” Kobelija said. Givens was a senior in high school when she started having heart palpitations and trouble catching her breath.
Traditional hospital gowns are designed to give doctors and nurses easy and quick access to patients because time is so important in medicine, especially in emergencies, but that can leave patients feeling exposed. MedStar Montgomery Medical Center in Olney, Maryland, is trying out a new gown by Care+Wear that offers more coverage but still allows easy access for medical treatment. It’s a wrap-style gown that ties inside in the front and again outside.
A Maryland woman returned from a wellness vacation in January to have her health dangerously deteriorate within hours. Sepsis, which has been called toxic shock syndrome and blood poisoning, comes on suddenly, can be deadly and is more common than people think. It is an infection in the blood that kills thousands of people in the U.S. each year. “I started the new year off so happy,” Jimena Ryan said.
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".
