ATLANTA – The saying goes “It takes a village to raise a child,” but for some, it might only take a soccer ball and a pair of cleats. Soccer in the Streets is a non-profit bringing the sport to under-served communities in the area. Since kicking off in 1989, the group strives to empower kids who come from low-income homes, attend low-performing schools and face adversities such as high crime rates in their neighborhoods or not enough food to eat.
ATHENS, Ga. -- Sarah Stubbs lives her life by a certain saying: "Let the world change you and you can change the world." Changing the world is something she is working on doing, one water filter at a time. The University of Georgia student has spent her last few summer breaks in the Dominican Republic helping communities in need. Here is where she realized the immense need for clean water. “Nothing can prepare you for the experiences you’re going to have there,” says Sarah.
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – When a family created a place for their son to learn and work, they had no idea it would turn into a community-wide treasure. Tempa and Michael Kohler opened ‘Special Kneads and Treats, Inc.’ so their son Bradley could have a place to work after he turned 22 and aged out of county-supported programs. He has Fragile X Syndrome: a genetic condition that causes learning disabilities and cognitive impairment. Both parents say Bradley inspired their business plan.
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".
