Willi Torres has volunteered twice to be a kidney donor for his son. The first time was more than five years ago, not long after his firstborn was diagnosed with an inflammatory kidney disease called Berger’s disease and needed a transplant. “I think that it’s something normal. If you’re a real dad, you don’t think about it. You just do what you have to do,” said Torres, 49, a math teacher at University High School.
Florida Hospital Waterman in Tavares is doubling the size of its emergency department and adding a new patient tower for pediatrics and women’s services, the hospital announced Wednesday. The $70 million project will add more than 111,000 square feet to the hospital. Florida Hospital Waterman Foundation has also pledged to raise $5 million through community donations. The expansion is in response to Lake County’s steady population growth, officials said.
Last year, not long after helping to care for dozens of survivors of Pulse nightclub shooting at ORMC’s trauma center, Dr. Nicholas Sakis and his wife Amy packed up their belongings, along with his beloved 2004 Infiniti, and moved to California. Sakis was about to start his second year of residency in internal medicine in San Bernardino and he was taking with him not only lessons from a career-defining event, but also a physical reminder of it all.
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".
