WASHINGTON, DC – Congress is close to a deal renewing the Children's Health Insurance Program for at least another six years. Under pressure from the states and buoyed by an assessment from the Congressional Budget Office that renewing for at least six years actually saves the government money, Congressional officials say that while things may still fall apart, the only real question seems to be for how long the program will be renewed.
PHOENIX, AZ – Tens of thousands of runners are headed to Phoenix for this weekend's races and other events. Traffic will be a challenge. The races – from Friday night's one mile race to the Marathon on Sunday morning – are part of the annual Rock and Roll Marathon series. "We are starting the Rock 'n' Roll party early this year with the Friday Night 1 Mile," said Nathan Kopp, Event Manager. "With the milestone of 15 years running and a new distance, this race weekend is one you won't want to miss.
SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Who knew that there was such a thing as "Bumper Car Trauma?" Apparently, Annaeliese and it provided for a bit of drama in Episode 2 of The Bachelor. Arie Luyendyk takes 15 of the remaining women to a demolition derby or, as host Chris Harrison calls it, "a Bashelor competition." Annaeliese fesses up quickly – through tears – that she doesn't know if he can do it. As a child years earlier, she had played bumper cars and "everyone kept hitting me" causing her to feel "so alone."

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".
