“From the time he leaves, until the time he comes back, I don’t breathe,” Sarita Wyche, of Springfield Gardens in Queens, New York, says about her 20-year-old son, who works as a carpenter in the entertainment industry. Wyche’s son’s hours are long and unpredictable — some days, he doesn’t come home until 2 a.m. “He’s had a driver’s license since he’s been 16, and he has a car, so he’s been stopped on several occasions.
While many issues and crises competed for the public’s attention in 2017, health care captured headlines throughout the year. Perhaps as a result, almost half of Americans say health care is their top concern going into 2018, according to a new Associated Press-NORC poll. Here, we look at 10 critical events in health care during the past year. Republicans could barely wait for President Donald Trump to take office before they began introducing a series of bills to repeal and replace the ACA.
The Senate will vote this week on a Republican proposal that reduces taxes by $1.5 trillion over the next decade, with the biggest tax cuts going to the richest Americans. The bill could have major effects on health outcomes by repealing the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) individual mandate and by reducing the income of the poor.

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".
