Jennie Rodgers came very close to becoming one of Mississippi’s missing moms.Rodgers narrowly survived a uterine rupture when she was pregnant with her son, Caleb, in November 2011.“I had never hurt like that in my life,” Rodgers said. As the medical staff was preparing for an emergency Caesarean section, she remembers telling her husband Rodney, “I don’t think I’m going to make it.”The numbers are small, but maternal deaths are devastating to young families.
Do you know what a Kingston Black is? How about a synonym for Kadarka? And what sake would you pair with grilled veal heart in ginger, chili and lime? These were just some of questions competitors in the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers’ Best Sommelier of Canada 2017 competition were required to answer. The contest played out in Rogers Arena on Sept. 4-5, 2017. It's the first time ever that B.C. has hosted this national competition.
Humans, for the most part, are creatures of habit. We tend to seek comfort in what we know. For wine, that might mean a crisp, vibrant, herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc or a deep purple, rich, full-bodied Malbec. We also usually prefer our whites clear, bright and pale lemon in colour while our reds still and served at room temperature. Anything that falls outside of these parameters may be regarded with suspicion. Yet on the fringes of the mainstream, a host of idiosyncratic wines beckon.
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".
