What’s likely to be in the American Health Care Act? Wouldn’t we all love to know! The bill was passed in the House, and it’s now being revised in the Senate. We know that some 23 million Americans would lose insurance under the House’s AHCA, with most of those losses stemming from limiting Medicaid eligibility. But unfortunately, details about the final plan are sparse because all Senate discussions are going on behind closed doors, and their proposal will have to go back to the House for a vote.
After ten years in corporate America stuck indoors and not spending nearly enough time with her young son, Staci Wilken said: “enough is enough.” The Manteno resident and mother of a 13-year-old boy tells me “Divine Intervention” prompted her to leave the Chicago Board of Trade in 2013. At the time, all she knew was she wanted to be more involved in her community but she had no idea what she would do.
"It started as a love letter to my daughter and now it's become an international movement much bigger than I ever imagined", says entrepreneur and mother Nancy Gianni when I asked her what inspired her to open GiGi's Playhouse in Hoffman Estates. GiGi was born with Down Syndrome 13 years ago.
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".
