The revolving door that leads to the lobby of Atlanta’s downtown Hilton Hotel is working overtime. One by one, they make their way into the lobby. As the crowd grows, there are many first time hellos, and even more ‘hello again’ hugs. All of them are leaving an outside world, where things are so easy, where steps are hard fought, where most of them are still fighting.
ATLANTA - If you passed by Jeremy Obata’s suburban Atlanta house, you would see him walking down the driveway with his mother to check for mail. This simple stroll out to the mailbox and a hug and a laugh with his mom is amazing when you consider that an unexpected journey and diagnosis has stolen the last five years of Jeremy’s life.
ATLANTA - They enter his room at Emory University Hospital. There are introductions and handshakes and smiles. The patient, a man who needs a new heart, tells neuropsychologists Doctor Tony Stringer and Jean Ikanga, “The mental part is worse than the stroke.”Doctor Stringer tries to reassure him. “Because you are a good candidate, it’s important we get a good sense of what your cognitive function is like.”Stringer and Ikanga then put the man through a series of seemingly simple tests.
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".
