Baylor Scott & White in Temple, in the middle of Texas, is in its seventh year of being squarely in the middle of the nationwide fight against the flu. If you're in Temple, you can't miss the Baylor Scott & White Medical Center, sitting on a hill high above FM 1741/S. 31st street. Without a walk down a long basement hallway, you might miss room 36B and its role in the influenza fight. The lab is part of the Centers for Disease Control's Vaccine Effectiveness Program.
MCKINNEY, TEXAS - In a video that went viral just last month, a teenager in Utah named Caleb Johnson, shaves his head to show his zig-zag scar, his reminder of the day his life changed forever. On November 22, 2000, he and his family were in a horrible car crash in McKinney. Caleb was only 13 months old. He and his four brothers and sisters survived. Their parents did not.
One of the places you are most likely to contract the flu is at work. And a Baylor Scott & White doctor recommends precautions become part of your daily routine. “If we shake hands, when we shake hands, that’s where the biggest risk of germs is,” said Dr. Roger Khetan. Those hands, filled with coughs and sneezes, make their way to shared computer keyboards and phones, which he recommends we sanitize as often as we can. “You want to sanitize your phone speaker and your ear (piece),” he said.
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".
