Currently, 117,000 people are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. Waiting for the phone call that a match has been found can be agonizing, and the reality is sometimes patients don't make it. Every day 22 people die waiting for an organ. One woman in Anne Arundel County knew she didn't have long to wait and so, she took a bold step. "I should probably go back to the very beginning, if I can," Stephanie Chabalko said.
Joint-replacement surgery can be an outpatient procedure, doctor saysJoint-replacement surgery used to mean several days of in-hospital recovery, but not anymore. Some surgeons will do it as an out-patient procedure, and find that there's less anxiety beforehand and a lot more relief after. Something as simple as raising her arms over head was out of the question for Kim Burke. "I was in pain daily.
Sometimes you just have to find a way to make something happen, even if it seems impossible. That was the case with Baltimore Clayworks. The nonprofit closed this year, but not for long, thanks to the community. "I couldn't figure anything to do with myself," Adam Hopkins said. Hopkins said it would be hard to believe he would be sharing his ceramic art with people. "I was incarcerated. I was in there for getting high," Hopkins said.
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".
