Standing in front of people and having them watch her doing anything is way outside Abby Santelio's comfort zone. And that's exactly why she was standing in front of students in her school, New School High School in Plymouth Township, singing the Beatles song, "Blackbird." She was one of several students who made presentations and stood to speak in front of the student body for the school's Day of Inspiration and Gratitude.
East Middle School classmates Elizabeth Snyder and Abby Wilson had a pretty simple -- and perfect -- answer for why they were packing Thanksgiving dinners at the Costick Center Wednesday. "It's the right thing to do." The two 11-year-old sixth-graders were among about a dozen kids who helped pack all the Thanksgiving dinner trimmings for bags to be delivered to needy families in the Farmington Public Schools district.
The pomp and circumstance was on full display Friday as hundreds of students at Pioneer Middle School honored more than 50 veterans during a warm, appreciative all-school Veterans Day assembly. And while the veterans certainly appreciated the attention and bathed in the glow of the tribute, many were aware that what they believe is an even more important lesson was going on:Young people were learning more about their country. World War II veteran Donald Folsom was one of those being honored.
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".
