PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Time to get moving kids! New research says senior citizens are often more active than many teenagers and smart phones get much of the blame. Experts say technology is a big reason why kids are so inactive…which is linked to the obesity epidemic. According to the CDC, more than 12 million US children and teenagers are overweight. “Try to encourage them in any way you can to get outside and do more activity,” Dr. Jennifer Brubaker of Cleveland Clinic Children’s said.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and the cancer is known as the silent killer because it’s difficult to find. It usually strikes older women or those with a family history, so imagine the shock when a family from Warrington learned their young child having it. Study: Senior Citizens Often More Active Than TeensWhen Paige Larosa was 11 she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. “It was crazy, I just like couldn’t believe it,” Paige, now 14, said.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Nearly 40 percent of millennials have at least one tattoo. Now, for the first time, the American Academy of Pediatrics wants teenagers and young adults to be aware of potential health issues with tattoos and piercings. There’s a special meaning behind each of Julia Fae’s tattoos. She got her first one when she was 16-years-old. “This ‘K’ right here, it stands for my father’s first name, Ken,” Fae said.
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".
