Would your go-to Halloween uniform make it on the job? We asked real women. What I do: I’m a patrol cop, so I’m in my car all day. I get dispatched to everything from routine traffic stops to having to run after and apprehend a criminal. We’re very hands on, so I’m in and out of my car multiple times throughout an eight-hour shift. What I wear: A traditional blue uniform with boots and a vest for protection. I also have my duty belt, which has my radio and gun on it. Would I wear the costume to work?
Five years ago, as a newly minted oncology nurse working the night shift at Norwalk Hospital in Connecticut, Kelly DePanfilis stopped to chat with one of her favorite patients, a middle-aged man with progressive leukemia. He was in the hospital for treatment, but what he really hoped for was a bone marrow transplant. He talked about Be the Match , a registry that connects patients with donors. “It made me want to see ifmatched with anyone,” DePanfilis says.
Our reliance on antibiotics has caught up with us: By using them so much, we've created potentially deadly bacteria (a.k.a. superbugs) that are resistant to the drugs. In response, national companies like Tyson Foods and McDonald's have announced they'll no longer sell chicken treated with antibiotics that are vital to human health. But as you rethink your eating habits, keep in mind: Limiting antibiotics in animals won't solve our superbug problem.
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".
