Doctors are pressing the Trump administration to rethink a new decision allowing states more leeway on Medicaid provider exclusions. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reversed a 2016 letter that said Medicaid programs can’t leave out family planning providers just because they offer certain medical services such as abortion, instead requiring proof of either criminal activity or incompetency to disqualify them.
The advocacy nonprofit organization Consumer Watchdog is calling for government officials to audit ten California hospitals recently fined for errors that placed their patients in "immediate jeopardy" of serious injury or death, including John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital.
After the killing of a 21-year-old transgender woman this past week, about 20 people paused in the garden patio at the Church of St. Paul in the Desert iin Palm Springs Sunday.

This happened @TempeMasjid, where I interviewed Imam Ahmed Shqeirat in college for one of the first profiles I wrote. "[What is most important to me] is to serve God and to serve humanity, especially at this time of chaos and misunderstanding," he told me then. https://twitter.com/cnn/status/974867867165511680
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".
