TAMPA -- Delwyn Collins is a giver who asks for nothing in return. For 28 years, the Tampa General Hospital employee has purchased toys for Tampa-area foster children with his own money. For nearly three decades, he has single-handedly provided thousands of smiles. “I don’t ask for nothing in return,” he said in front of a wall of newly-purchased Christmas toys.
It’s been over 75 years since the day then-President Theodore Roosevelt labeled “a day that will live in infamy” when 392 Japanese aircraft attacked Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor. “I can see it in front of me right now as they were coming,” said 96-year old Pearl Harbor survivor, George Kondas. “Those kind of days you don’t forget.”George was just 20 years old when the Japanese bombs started falling. A third-class gunner’s mate on the USS Tracy, he began to defend his nation.
Erin Stoy has fond memories of growing up in her dad’s classic entertainment store. Some other memories are bit odd. “I remember being very confused by the Poison posters and things, like wondering why the men had makeup on,” she said with a laugh. “I think I get it now.”When she was just 10, she would bring Ron story dinner at the Sound Exchange in Tampa. Her dad’s store bought and sold vintage media like vinyl records and 8-tracks.
Amazing to meet Andrew Carroll today, a man on a mission to collect 1 million war letters! Some of his collection blew me away! Such gripping words from our soldiers throughout American wars 🇺🇸 https://t.co/SLDXMVbp6Q
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".
