In early June, Malisa joined a friend at the movies. At 38 weeks pregnant, Malisa often felt uncomfortable. Especially when the temperatures regularly reached 100 degrees. But when the 37-year-old felt a chest pain, like someone was sitting on it, she skipped the movie and went to the emergency room. “I have never been pregnant before and I found out that being pregnant a lot of people don’t tell you all the symptoms,” Malisa told TODAY.
Two widowers were able to take their friendship and love of sports to the next level at the National Senior Games. Bill Brownson, 88, and Everett “Ev” Beemer, 85, met three years ago at breakfast at Freedom Village Holland Community in Michigan. “He pulled up a chair,” Brownson told TODAY.
In January, Kayla Parsons learned she had an aggressive form of breast cancer. The 26-year-old left school and moved home to Kentucky for treatment. Worried about her health, the chemotherapy and a targeted treatment for HER2-positive breast cancer also left Kayla feeling insecure about the changes in her body. She lost all her hair, including her eyebrows and eyelashes, and she struggled to use fake eyelashes. “Anyone at any age would be overwhelmed,” Parsons told TODAY.
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".
