BENTON, Ark. - More than a decade ago, a local thrift store opened its doors. But its owner had a bigger idea than simply making a dollar or two on some gently-used items. She wanted to make an impact on people who had made some bad choices, including her own son. "That's basically what this place is. It's like one big yard sale, you know?," says Bonnie Johnson of her Benton thrift store Helping Hands & Caring Hearts.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Pastor Kenneth Martin of Greater Archview Baptist Church knows all too well how crime has spiked in Little Rock. Last month, Danny Lewis, a member of Pastor Martin's church was killed. "It's one that is kind of overwhelming," he says. "This is a person who was actively involved in our congregation. He was also a person who was actively involved in his community, in his neighborhood."
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Every Olympian has a story on how they became one of the best of the best in the world. Usually this story includes a love for their sport, but for bronze medalist Allison Baver, she didn’t start her Olympic sport until high school. “Becoming an Olympian was a journey, it was almost like a life purpose,” Baver said. Baver’s quest for Olympic glory began with a non-Olympic sport. “When I was in fourth grade, I decided to join the speed skating team,” she 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".
