There’s a worrisome spike in tooth decay among U.S. preschoolers in the past decade, with dentists reporting a marked increase of 2- to 5-year-olds needing extensive dental work. Too antsy or scared to sit through long procedures of multiple fillings, even crowns and root canals, many end up undergoing general anesthesia. Pediatric dentist Dr. Gila Dorostkar, who has practiced in Greenbrae for 20 years, often sees severe tooth decay among toddlers.
A grove of apple trees was cut down at Kent Middle School this summer to make room for a new music building and restrooms. “I’m really upset,” said Taylor Sherman, 23, a former student who planted the trees as an Eagle Scout project six years ago,Sherman, of Greenbrae, raised about $1,500 and enlisted help from other Boy Scouts in Troop 59 and their families to plant seven or eight trees with drip irrigation. The idea was for Kent students to learn about sustainability, composting and agriculture.
She took a cab from the hospital after a double mastectomy and came home to an empty house. First, ovarian cancer; this time, breast cancer. “I’ve been there and I understand what women go through,” said Daphne Evans, founder of the nonprofit Heaven’s Door Cancer Foundation, which supports women with the disease. Evans said she “couldn’t get away from the mirror in the hallway and just cried” post-surgery.
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".
