If you have a child who suffers from a serious allergy that can result in anaphylaxis, you should have an EpiPen on hand for them at all times. But currently, there’s a shortage of them in Canada. EpiPens are auto-injectors that can deliver a life-saving dose of epinephrine during a severe allergic reaction. Pfizer Canada, the pharmaceutical company that makes them, says they are currently experiencing a shortage of the 0.3 mg format EpiPens due to an interruption in supply.
Every night, soon after her husband and two kids went to bed, Robin Masters’s house would fill with the rumble of snoring. Her youngest, Blair, was always the loudest. “You could hear him through the whole house,” she recalls. She never thought much of it, but when Blair began showing signs of being chronically tired and was getting sick all the time—so much so that he missed 50 days of junior kindergarten—she knew something was wrong.
Two prominent Apple shareholders sent a letter to the company expressing concern that too much screen time is having negative consequences for kids. Rarely a week goes by that we don’t hear about the dangers of screen time for kids. Some research has connected young children’s use of screens to speech delays while other warnings have linked early screen exposure to poor cognitive development.
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".
