A year ago, Robert Fealy was on constant oxygen and could barely breathe. “It got to where I'd walk halfway to the bathroom, lean on the counter, and stop and catch my breath,” he said. Robert was born with a genetic disorder known as A1AD, which damaged his lungs. Robert’s wife, Jeanne Fealy, said, “I saw him deteriorate so quickly.”He needed a lung transplant, but Robert’s liver was also in bad shape. Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic decided Robert would need a lung and liver transplant.
Each year in the U.S., about 4,000 children are diagnosed with brain tumors. Most are treated with surgery, radiation and high doses of chemotherapy, which can have debilitating side effects. Now, a new way of thinking targets the tumor and leaves these toxic side effects behind. Sydnie Reedy loves a good joke. Even when there’s not much to laugh about. “I was diagnosed in 2011 with Medulloblastoma,” Sydnie says. “I was 13.”She’s 20 now. She’s battled brain tumors for a third of her life.
Most people who have it say they wouldn’t wish it on their worst enemies. It’s chronic pain and best estimates say a hundred million Americans suffer from it every day all day. Many turn to surgery and pain medicine, but a Seattle doctor says we’ve got it all wrong. It’s music for Charley Pavlosky—the sound of a solid tee shot on the back nine. Even sweeter today than just a few years ago competing in the U.S. Open. Chronic pain stole away his favorite sport.
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".
