Mouse droppings as a pizza topping? Actually, they were in an empty pizza pan, but, still. That is one of the latest examples of the finds inspectors with Philadelphia Department of Public Health encountered, along with fruit-fly infestations, dirty dishes, and moldy ice bins as they examined local restaurants and markets. From Sept. 1 to Sept. 16, 15 restaurants and markets were closed temporarily or voluntarily agreed to close to correct violations.
Parents now have another reason to question whether their young children should be playing tackle football. A recent study found that kids under the age of 12 who play the contact sport are more likely to suffer from depression, apathy, and other behavioral issues when they are older, the national health publication STAT reported. The findings raise more concerns in a sport already dealing with declining participation as parents assess the risk of concussions.
Eleanor Beason of Lindenwold has run nearly 24,000 miles — that’s almost the circumference of the planet. Beason, 61, has competed in 1,000 races since 1999, when she first entered the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Pounding that much pavement hasn’t been without injuries. Beason has dealt with the painful foot condition plantar fasciitis, a torn hamstring, and a stress fracture to her sacrum, the triangular bone in the lower back located between the hips.
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".
