At first, 6-day-old Mariana struggled to eat. Then she couldn’t stay awake no matter how hard her parents, Nicole and Shane Sifrit, tried. Soon, she began breathing rapidly. After they rushed her to the emergency room, little Mariana was given the diagnosis of meningitis HVS-1. Doctors suspect she caught the virus after a loved one with cold sores touched or kissed her. Less than two weeks after falling ill, 18-day-old Mariana died. Now the Sifrits hope others can learn from their story.
Growing up Jenna Winchester always weighed more than other children and her father never let her forget it. Once when she fell he said, “I hope you didn’t dent the floor.” Even though he constantly made cracks about her weight, Winchester tried ignoring him. Yet, his insults stuck, causing her to turn to food for comfort. “I got extremely depressed and wouldn’t leave the house or do anything but eat and sleep,” Winchester told TODAY.
In early June, Eileen Korey visited Kari Phillips, her longtime colorist, for a touch up. As Phillips was sectioning her client's hair for the color, she noticed a mark on the back of Korey's head. “Did you hit your head?” Phillips asked. “I see something here and I don’t like what I see." Phillips snapped a photo and showed it to Korey, a former TV health reporter in Cleveland. “It was very frightening looking.
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".
