Greg Tufaro lovingly remembers his daughter, Marisa, as a talented artist, singer, musician, and writer whose love of school and life “was amazing, when you think of all the adversity she had to overcome.”Born with a congenital heart defect, Marisa endured six open-heart surgeries prior to a heart transplant. After a postoperative complication developed into a rare form of stage 4 cancer, she died in January at 13.
There is considerable excitement among family and friends about her upcoming 110th birthday on July 25, but Ulla Lund is taking the milestone in stride. “It’s a big one,” Lund said matter-of-factly. “I realize I’m getting quite old.”Next week, Lund’s former neighbors from Farmcrest Avenue in Lexington — where she lived from 1943 until moving to Meadow Green Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Waltham six years ago — are bringing an ice cream cake, per their annual tradition since Lund turned 100.
Wellesley teen Matt Chapman lay awake long after the ABC News “20/20” report “My Reality: A Hidden America,” profiling the struggles of working-class Americans, aired on Jan. 13. He was particularly bothered when Kansas City fast-food worker Terrence Wise told Diane Sawyer how he must sometimes choose between paying the electric bill and buying groceries — despite working two jobs.
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".
