Saturday wasn’t exactly play time for Brennen Phipps and his 13-year-old son, Ethan Phipps. While they spent much of the day at Legacy Play Village, they were hard at work using shovels, drills and an assortment of other power tools instead of enjoying the elaborate maze of slides, climbing equipment and swings at the 30,000-square-foot playground in West Lubbock.
That’s why Legacy Play Village organizers are calling for volunteers to turn out for a day of cleanup, repairs and maintenance Saturday at the playground at 6303 Marsha Sharp Fwy. — near Spur 327 and Milwaukee Avenue — before it reopens Sunday after being closed for two weeks. The volunteer session is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and anyone wanting to participate can sign up by email — firstname.lastname@example.org — or through the organization’s website, www.legacyplayvillagelubbock.org.
One-man band Owl City is known for sweet and sometimes silly songs such as "Fireflies" and "Strawberry Avalanche," but recently, Adam Young (singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist) took a more sentimental approach for Father's Day. "Not All Heros Wear Capes" is a touching tribute to the man who "taught me to drive and to fight and to dream," Young sings. "One of the most important relationships in my life is the one I have with my dad," Young wrote in a statement on the Owl City website.
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".
