- For most women undergoing chemotherapy the inevitable hair loss is a constant reminder they're ill and is a public announcement of a private battle. "Losing hair is an enormous, almost crippling side effect for some women when they hear about treatment," Dr. Paula Klein of Mount Sinai Health System said. "Patients cry all the time." That was the case for Dr. Klein's patient Barbara Warnock-Morgan. She was diagnosed with breast cancer last December.
- Ice Cube is one of the founders of the Big3, a three-on-three professional basketball league that, as he puts it, is changing the game. He calls the players "ballers." And now, these ballers -- former NBA players and legends -- have the chance to ball again. They'll travel the country this summer for their tournament-style games that will feature four-point shots and hand-checking.
- At City Point in Downtown Brooklyn, the DeKalb Market Hall offers a big serving of the boroughs with a taste of New York City classics. They're calling it the "best spot in town." "I wanted it to be chaotic; I wanted it to be fun. I wanted it to be very relaxed. I wanted everybody to feel super comfortable here," said Anna Castellani, the owner of the 60,000-square-foot food paradise. For Castellani, finding the right vendors for it was crucial.
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".
