So many things have changed in my life time it is scary.When I was young air travel was in its infancy. We used to go to Plainfield and park along the road (40) to watch the planes take off and land. Later on, the airport made a place where people could go out on a patio type thing right on the parking area for cars. Yes, we were entertained easily in these years. It was a double thing for us as we also got to drive on the only four lane road in the state US 40.
In 1957, I was attending Butler and was enrolled in the Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corp. It was my second year at Butler and AFROTC, as I was (surprisingly) a member of their fancy drill team. As such and having had 4 years of Jr. Army ROTC in high school at La Jolla, California, I was among those chosen to take a trip to Castle Air Force Base in California. We of course flew out on a C-46 from Bakalar Air Force Base in Columbus, Indiana.
Around this time of year, at least in our family, our thoughts turn to Grundy Mountain School. Jerry Kent told me recently that this will be the 70th year Rush County has gone to Grundy. Our family is interested in Grundy because my father-in-law Dale Gates was one of the original trio that started the whole thing. Dale, Delbert Fancher, Tom Maddox and eventually Earl Frank Priest were the first ones to start this well worth while trip.
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".
