En la ciudad de Lemoore, una comunidad de 25,000 habitantes ubicada en campos áridos de cultivo en el Valle de San Joaquín de California, casi todo el mundo tiene una historia para contar sobre la fiebre del valle. Tomemos el caso de Frank Bernhardt, que disfruta de una cerveza en el bar Fleet Reserve en las afueras de la ciudad. Su primer contacto con esta enfermedad fue enseguida después de mudarse a esta zona, en la década de 1960. “Hace varios años, mi hija menor tuvo esta enfermedad.
In the city of Lemoore, a community of 25,000 rising out of arid cropland in the San Joaquin Valley, almost everyone has a story about valley fever.Take Frank Bernhardt, nursing a beer at the Fleet Reserve bar on the edge of town. He first encountered the disease just after moving here in the 1960s. “Years ago, my youngest daughter had it. She just didn't have no energy,” he said.“I had a sailor that worked for me that had it,” recalls Kevin Crownover, playing dice across the bar.
Dr. Olga Meave sees a patient complaining of shoulder pain. After graduating from medical school and practicing medicine in her hometown in northern Mexico, Meave is now a third-year resident at the Rio Bravo Family Residency program in Bakersfield. This story comes from Valley Public Radio’s Struggling For Care series, investigating the San Joaquin Valley's lack of doctors.
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".
