The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says flu activity is on the rise in Ohio and is now widespread in the state. Last year, flu activity wasn't elevated to widespread in Ohio until mid-January. The Ohio Department of Health says hospitalizations are also much worse this year than a year ago. Even with reports from Australia predicting that this year's vaccine is only 10-percent effective, doctors say you should still get the shot.
A mom is warning others to be aware of their surroundings as they head out and about for the holiday season, after she says she was followed by a man while running errands with her young son. Beth Foster says it happened Wednesday afternoon along U.S. 60 in the Ashland area. She was at the Dollar Tree, across from the Kyova Mall, with her son Grayson. Foster says as she was leaving, a man rushed out from the middle of the store but insisted she go first.
Drowsy driving is estimated to contribute to as many as 1.2 million crashes. Experts say when driving while drowsy, your attention span is limited, you don't notice what's going on around you and response times are significantly impaired. According to Kathy Johnson, manager at St. Mary's Regional Sleep Center, driving without sleeping for 18 hours will simulate an impairment of a BAC level of .05 percent.
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".
