The power of social media is on full display for an Australian man who used Facebook to help find an advanced treatment for his brain cancer. Dale Newman’s journey to the treatment began months ago when he and his wife Amber searched around the world for the life-saving specialized cancer treatment that he needed. “I belong to a few brain tumor support groups,” Amber said.
A new mom is still recovering after delivering her third child Saturday morning. The outift the newborn baby boy is wearing came courtesy of his newborn nurse darlene rogers. "Yes it's nice cause a lot of the hospitals don't do that," new mom Jasmine Abston said. For the past six months, all mothers who give birth here at the new Roseland Community Hospital are given a gift box of clothing. "Yeah I was surprised," Adeogun Latifat, also a new mother, said. "And they are so lovely."
Every Friday at 6 p.m. Sarah Anderson goes live on Facebook, interacting with thousands of followers who are inspired by her story of survival. "I was 18, a new mother, going through Stage 4 head and neck cancer," she said. Anderson had no symptoms at first other than a toothache that wouldn't go away. "If it wasn't for me being pregnant, the doctor said I would have never found out that I was Stage 4," she said. "My daughter saved my life."
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".
