Emergencies by definition are unpredictable. There was no way to foresee the havoc of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria and Nate. Each storm was devastating to those affected, and Americans are praying for healing and recovery. Meanwhile, Congress should be preparing for future disasters. As unpredictable as hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis are, such emergencies should not be unexpected. It is only a matter of time before the U.S. faces the next catastrophe.
Jennifer Miklos wrote a suicide note and tried to take her own life. The attempt failed, but she credits an introduction in the days that followed with saving her life. After eight days in rehab at a Sioux Falls behavioral clinic, Miklos met for coffee with a warm, compassionate, perpetually smiley woman. “She let me cry. She let me hug her. She let me have her shoulder to cry on,” Miklos said.
Getting a case of the heebie-jeebies, or worse, will be a given during a visit to one of the region’s amusement parks this Halloween season.Ghouls, zombies, witches and creatures of the night will roam the streets, lurk in corners and lay waiting for the chance to scare the stuffing out of park visitors.There will be tears. There will be screams. There will be fear.
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".
