More than a year after the death of their 15-month-old son, an MMA fighter and his wife are opening up about how they've managed to cope with their grief — and the birth of a new son. Marcus Kowal and Mishel Eder introduced 4-month-old son Nico, their second child, on a recent episode of "The Doctors." "He's been a blessing and he has really helped us on this healing journey," Eder said. The couple's first son, Liam, was killed by a drunk driver last September near Los Angeles, California.
Meaux, who got engaged to her high school sweetheart, Bryan Ballard, in May, told TODAY Style that the reveal was no spur-of-the-moment decision. "I had been thinking about it for several weeks," she said. "I've hidden this for so long. And I'm growing up and getting more mature and confident. And, not to mention, I'm getting married! So it's time I learn to accept myself." Meaux learned she had alopecia when she was 8 years old.
It's not every day you see a 22-year-old man forge a close friendship with an 81-year-old woman, but for Spencer Sleyon and Rosalind "Roz" Guttman, it makes perfect sense. They both love Scrabble, for starters. While Sleyon is an aspiring rapper in New York and Guttman a retiree in Florida, they met last summer through the smartphone app Words With Friends, a popular Scrabble-like game in which players can talk to each other through a messaging function.
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".
