When April Sundberg stops in to visit one of the classrooms at Noah’s Ark Child Care and Preschool, she always has time for hugs.Sundberg, director of the preschool, says that’s one of the favorite things about her job. She may be in a hurry, but it’s especially rewarding to see the children enjoying being at school and so excited to show her what they have learned.“It’s exciting seeing their eyes light up,” she said.
With a large swath of Central Nebraska right in the path of the total solar eclipse coming on Aug. 21, I turned my attention to movies that hinge on eclipses.I discovered that there are many films that try to depict an eclipse, some more successfully than others, but I focused on three for which the eclipse is the story, or at least a catalyst for the story.My favorite is a true story, as is typically the case for me.“Einstein and Eddington,” a 2008 HBO film that is available on HBO Go,...
It’s time for a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.There probably aren’t many people who wanted to see another reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, since Tobey McGuire and Andrew Garfield have each had their own series of Spider-Man movies within the past 15 years.But whereas McGuire and Garfield were 26 and 28 when they made their first Spider-Man movies, in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” we have a real teenager playing Spider-Man.
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".
