Jeffrey Lasky grew up just around the corner from the Jewish Educational Alliance, often participating in many of its activities. “While I grew up in Sylvan Terrace, all of my time — sports, participating in Boy Scouts, youth groups — the Jewish Educational Alliance was instrumental in my development as a young adult,” he said. After graduating from Benedictine Military School in 1974, he went off to the University of Georgia, earning a business degree in 1978 and his Juris Doctorate in 1981.
Children as young as 2 can be enrolled. They must be wearing hearing aids or have cochlear implants. All the children are in class from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. focusing on speech and language skills. They must turn 3 years old before they can also attend the afternoon session, which is pre-academic, according to Sound Start Program Director Tracy Edenfield, who is also the teacher. Students can stay in the program up until 6 years of age.
SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Caroline Creech is thriving at 2 ½ years old, talking in complete and understandable sentences — a major accomplishment for a child born unable to hear. Mom Kristen and Caroline were both part of Sound Start’s Mommy and Me program when Caroline was 20 months old. This allowed Caroline time to acclimate to a classroom setting while her mother was present. When Caroline turned 2 in February, she was enrolled in the Sound Start program.
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".
