Volunteers with Love Out Loud continue to put the needs of others first. It's part of a week-long mission to share the love of Jesus Christ through action. People involved in this annual ministry spoke to Newscenter 11 about how it has changed their lives. Volunteer Jackie Darby says she and others met with residents at Oakland Heights Gardens in the Eddie Lee Griffin, Jr., Senior Citizen Center. Over the past few days, Darby said she has taken the time to get to know the residents.
The Meridian Public School District is seeking a partnership with Greater Meridian Health Clinic to meet student needs following cutbacks in federal funding that affected school nurses. MPSD is working out a plan to establish a building offering students medical treatment and preventative care. According to clinic CEO Wilbert Jones, the goal is to staff the clinic with nurse practitioners and medical personnel, and eventually serve every student over time.
Students attending the Meridian Public School District will get out early one day a week during the 2017-2018 school year. All students will be dismissed about an hour early on Wednesdays. Superintendent Dr. Amy Carter says the early dismissal is for teachers. They will use the extra time to discuss classroom standards, curriculum and share creative ways to deliver instructional lessons to students.
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".
