Today's Deal by bestselling author, Jorge P. Newbery, is a warm and Insightful Memoir. Jorge Newbery had it made: he was a high school dropout who managed to build a real estate empire of over 4,000 apartments across the USA. Taking risks and working tirelessly were the ingredients of his success; unfortunately, he took one risk too many. An ice storm on Christmas Eve 2004 destroyed everything. He was maligned, publicly shamed, and financially gutted—even arrested.
Many people, even those with health insurance, feel ripped off after a hospital stay. According to a 2014 Harvard School of Public Health study, 42% of Americans surveyed do not trust doctors. Doctors are seen as “a group concerned with their own professional problems and economic issues,” according to Robert Blendon, a Harvard professor of health policy and analysis. Bella, a woman from Denver, had an experience that exemplifies why many Americans feel this way.
At American Homeowner Preservation we deal every day with homeowners who are unable to afford their mortgages. We hear their stories and try our best to offer them solutions so that they may stay in their homes. There may be a stereotype that people who don’t pay their bills are simply lazy, but the reality is that most are hardworking people who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own. There is no better example of this than people who lose their homes due to medical problems.
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".
