August 6 was not the first time Robert Edward Fuller died. Suffering from the complications of multiple myeloma, a rare type of cancer, Fuller was taken to the emergency room in March. “They told me he had passed away,” wife Toya Pak Fuller said, remembering how quickly the examination room flooded with doctors working to save her husband. “But he came back (to life),” she said. “He had been dead 15 seconds.”Fuller, fighting through numerous tragedies, became an inspiration to family and friends.
Helen Ray Shedwin and her siblings were orphaned before she finished elementary school in Groveton, a small town north of Houston. “Family took in the kids and kept them together,” son Charles Shedwin said. In the late 1940s, Shedwin became a child laborer. With the family needing money, she picked crops for pay before and after school. Creating a legacy of hard work and faith, she became an example to those who came after her.
When Col. Roy W. Burley Sr., an Army veteran of three wars, came home to San Antonio to retire, he got to work. He became director of personnel at USAA and later helped establish job training programs on the East Side. And when Lutheran General Hospital closed on the West Side in 1991, Burley was a key player in the creation of the Texas Diabetes Institute, earning him a place on the institute’s Wall of Honor. And he was chief of staff for two state legislators.
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".
