Despite its public and continued emphasis on fraternity, Frater Sodalis’ history is one that actually springs from a time of ultimate discord – World War II. Two months after Pearl Harbor was bombed, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066. Its effect was to order all Japanese-Americans to evacuate the West Coast. Around 120,000 people, many American citizens, were relocated to one of 10 internment camps located throughout the country.
The Abilene Zoo announced Thursday that another giraffe was added to its herd this week. The calf, born Monday about 9 a.m., is a first-time first time birth for mother Jamie, who arrived last year prior to the opening of the zoo's Giraffe Safari. “The birth went very well for this first-time mom,” said Zoo Executive Director Bill Gersonde, who described it as "pretty much a textbook birth.'
Tourism in 2016 was a $416.1 million driver of the Abilene area’s economy, employing 3,930 people and providing $11.5 million in local tax receipts, according to a recently released state report. “Tourism is so important to have because it generates tax revenue and jobs within the community,” said Nanci Liles, executive director of the Abilene Convention and Visitors Bureau.
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".
