Sitting beside her husband’s hospital bed, Michelle Jackson could not believe where she was. Days earlier, Stuart, 56, had complained of feeling under the weather. Now, machines all around him beeped and whirred, tubes snaked down his throat, wires were taped to his chest…Michelle took a photo, knowing that when Stuart woke up he’d never believe her when she told him how ill he’d looked. "I never thought I’d lose him," Michelle says. "But he didn’t wake up.
Wherever Kelly Hartman’s adventures took her, her Boxer dog Suzie was there too. Hiking up mountains, or taking a road trip up the coast from their New York home, it was always Kelly and Suzie, together. So much so that if Kelly couldn’t find anywhere dog-friendly to stay overnight, she’d do the only sensible thing she could – curl up in the back of her car, a blanket for warmth and Suzie nuzzling into her neck. The intrepid pair kept each other cosy.
When Kim Smith came round from a nine-week coma, her body riddled with infection, she had no idea just how close to death she had been. But as that realisation gripped her, it gave her a strength that stunned her family – because the first thing doctors had to ask was: “Please can we amputate all your limbs?”And Kim knew straight away she would go through anything to hang on to the life, and the family, she loved. She recalls: “Both my hands were to go, and also my legs above the knee.
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".
