From the time he started playing football at the age of 9 until his injury-ending game at San Jacinto High School in 1995, Ricardo Librado Olivo didn’t think twice about what long-term damage he might be receiving or inflicting. Now that he’s a neurologist and faculty member at Loma Linda University, he sees first-hand how concussions and other disorders affect the brain.
Being on the sidelines during football games this season took on a different meaning for Seth Whisnant. After playing for the Titans for three years, the Tahquitz High School senior continued to encourage his team, but this year it was as a cheerleader. “Everyone supported my decision and I’m really happy with it,” said Seth, 17. “The skills I bring to the team are my strength and encouragement.”During his football career, Seth played nose and defensive end and offensive right tackle.
Children are sent to school to learn, but for Hamilton High School senior Makayla Teel, learning had lots of challenges. “When I began kindergarten, I immediately fell behind in school, and for only being in kindergarten that was not a good thing,” said Teel, 17. It was thought she had a learning disability and testing began. In first grade, her teacher suspected eyesight was the problem, so she got glasses. “This helped a little bit, but I still couldn’t comprehend anything I read,” Teel 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".
