It's not surprising -- not only is the health care law complex, multifaceted, and still unfolding, it's also a central focus in this presidential election. President Obama, obviously, is fighting to keep it in place, while Mitt Romney has pledged to repeal it and allow the states to develop their own health care reform plans. Why are health care costs so different for women now, and how is that going to change?
If you’d asked me about the solar eclipse a year ago, I would have been stoked to tell you that on August 21, 2017, Nashville will be in the eclipse’s path of totality — meaning we’re going to have nearly two minutes here of total darkness here in the city. The last time this happened in Nashville was five hundred years ago! Totally cool, right? The eclipse is now a week away and I’m completely stressed out.
Serena Williams is known for her provocative sportswear on the tennis court, but this hot pink bodysuit just may win the award for most memorable. The 29-year-old tennis star posted this photo of herself on Twitter yesterday, announcing her return to training after a major health scare. In February, a blood clot the size of a grapefruit was found in her lung and surgically removed. It's great to see her back on the court so soon after her operation -- hot pink jumpsuit and all!
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
