I am holding his hand, but I can’t form words. In truth, there is nothing to say. It occurs to me it has been a full day since we have spoken to each other. It’s a blistering hot day, and I take note of the heat the same way I might notice a buzzing fly; it is around me but I cannot feel it. My phone rings and it’s our friend who has told us to take a break and “get outside” since it would be a while, a few hours more waiting.
MARIETTA, Ga. -- You know those unused gift cards, the ones you keep telling yourself you need to use before they expire? Mishael Porembski would love to have them, to give to widowed families this holiday season. Porembski is a widowed mother to two girls, 10-year-old Arie and 7-year old-Sophia. Their father, Porembski's husband Jason, died almost eight years ago, when she was pregnant with Sophia. She founded a group, called Team Lady 180, to help other widows deal with their grief.
ATLANTA - There are things we do, like how we hang up our clothes or load the dishwasher. Then there is who we areâ€Š—â€Šlike the color of our eyes, the shape of our face, or the laugh that sounds like our mother. And now there is proof that resilience, that ability to bounce back, is sometimes hardwired, part of our genetic blueprint. Maureen Randall has been homeless most of the past year, after she and her daughter lost their apartment to a flood.
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".
