More and more Americans are becoming medical tourists, zooming off to exotic places to get their hip or knee replacement, facelift, or dental implants at half the price of the procedure at home — and often with much shorter wait times. And they can get a nice vacation and suntan in the bargain. Patients Beyond Borders estimated that about 1.4 million Americans traveled abroad for health care needs in 2017.
Last summer “Wonder Woman” shattered the glass ceiling for female-led blockbusters and comic book movies. The picture grossed $821 million around the world, was beloved by critics, and sparked a cultural phenomenon. The film also has the opportunity to break down one final barrier by becoming the first comic book superhero movie to ever be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.
While looking at Match.com profiles recently, I was struck by how many men not only describe themselves as “adventurous,” but are seeking women who are also adventurous. I’m not adventurous. Not even a little. I’m a 63-year-old librarian. What I am is bookish. I don’t want to date Indiana Jones! The last thing I need is a man who loves to skydive and bungee jump and travel to far-flung locations. I just want someone I can read in bed with. So why are so many men my age seeking adventurous women?
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".
