A national nonprofit aimed at helping homeless people and their pets is coming back to Toledo to follow-up on their work here earlier this year. New York-based My Dog Is My Home facilitated a service fair in February for homeless people and their animals and conducted a survey with participants to collect data about that population in the Glass City. An event Oct. 2 will address the information collected and share ideas of how to help those individuals and keep them together with their animals.
The everyday tasks of life are so much easier with a roof over your head. Bathing, making meals, doing laundry, not to mention sleeping. Diann Wears, 52, takes none of it for granted. “We don’t have to worry about freezing to death,” she said. “The concrete was cold. And hard.”Last year, Diann spent more than two months living on the streets in downtown Toledo.
It’s not every day horses are allowed to graze and amble around a green space in the middle of the University of Toledo’s main campus. The UT Equestrian Team, which is only in its second year, pulled together a unique fund-raiser Friday to benefit disaster relief efforts in Texas and Florida, as well as UT’s food bank. Visitors paid a few dollars or donated nonperishable items to ride one of four horses in a temporary corral near the Memorial Field House during the Horses for Humanity event.
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".
