EDGEWATER - Just because it's the first day of school doesn't mean Jefferson High School seniors shouldn't be thinking about their last day. "We always meet with our seniors like the first two weeks of school," Nate Chamberlain, school counselor, said. "It's excitement. Let's talk about college. Let's talk about what could be." Chamberlain works at Jefferson Junior/Senior High School and is part of an effort orchestrated by Joel Newton as executive director of a group called the Edgewater Collective.
BOULDER - Though she spent more than 40 years of her life working in schools, for Dr. Cindy Stevenson, this week is like her first day. "I'm thrilled to be back. It's fun," Stevenson said. "It's challenging." She worked her entire career working in neighboring Jefferson County including the last 12 years serving as superintendent. Stevenson resigned in 2014 after controversy and tensions with the school board at the time.
DENVER - When a new home is built, buyers expect the best. But there are a number of homes in Colorado causing the worst, according to attorney Mark Nelson. "A pungent smell that irritates the eyes, nose, and throat," Nelson said. "It's apparent to anyone who goes into one of those basements, particularly basements that are unfinished." Nelson said the cause is formaldehyde leaking out of floor joists (the support for floors) made by a Seattle-based company called Weyerhaeuser.
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".
