Deana Cavan, the courageous mother to a baby boy who battled cancer that took his life, wants to raise awareness of the reality of the childhood disease. Cavan was forced to say goodbye to her 10-month-old son Rett back in February 2015, following aggressive chemotherapy treatments and extensive medical visits. Deana and her husband James first brought Rett to the hospital in October 2014, after they noticed unusual changes when the baby's abdomen became stiff and he started sleeping excessively.
Just one month before his big day, a groom-to-be was enjoying what was intended to be relaxing time at a swimming pool when his life changed forever. On July 11, Chris Stafford, of Richmond, Texas, took a forceful plunge feet-first into the shallow water at the community pool when he instantly lost sensation in his legs and felt his neck snap. Chris informed his fiancé Madison that something wasn't right and 911 was immediately called to the scene of the incident.
Dartmouth's women's swimming and diving team has been placed on institutional probation for violating the university's hazing policy. The college said some women of the team forced first-year members to organize and display a sexualized power point presentation while the group was on a training trip back in December, a claim the team has since admitted to. The Ivy League college has banned the bunch from competing in their first three fall meets as well as their fall training.
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".
