Everyone knows about our current opioid epidemic. In 2016 alone, the number of Americans dying from drug overdose was double the number of Americans who died in motor vehicle accidents. Clearly the opioid epidemic is not going away anytime soon. Recently the National Academies Report released recommendations to address the issue. Many of them are positive, such as improved public education and non-medication methods of pain management.
As avid Packer fans, you cannot help but read, hear, watch, and contribute to commentary about the goings-on in the NFL stirred recently by President Donald Trump’s comments about football players who kneel during the national anthem. Opinions vary widely, from fans who support players who stand up as proud Americans when our national anthem is played, to those who don’t care either way, to those who believe free speech trumps patriotism in this day and age of inequality.
This is an open letter to all of our Wisconsin legislators and Medicaid recipients. While the rising costs of health care are hitting headlines every day, the detriment of the Medicaid program in the state has largely been ignored. In the past year, Medicaid has drastically cut reimbursement rates to health care providers in Wisconsin who provide high quality care to Medicaid recipients.
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".
