The Alabama State Board of Education Tuesday accepted a poor evaluation of State Superintendent Michael Sentance over objections from two members who questioned the fairness of the process. The board voted 6 to 2 to accept an evaluation that appeared to give Sentance low grades on a ranked evaluation system. The evaluation was initiated by board vice president Stephanie Bell, a Republican whose district includes Montgomery.
The Roy Moore of 2017 is the Roy Moore of 2012 and the Roy Moore of 2010 and 2006 and 2000. The former Alabama chief justice and current U.S. Senate candidate in a recent interview recapped many themes he's hit over the last two decades, stressing his commitment to a strict constructionist view of the U.S. Constitution with an emphasis on states’ rights and conservative social standpoints.
Alabama State School Superintendent Michael Sentance’s future isn’t clear, but the Alabama State Board of Education's divisions over it are plain. The board Tuesday will take up an agenda that will include an evaluation of Sentance's time as the state’s public school leader, and could serve as a crossroads in a job he has held for less than a year. But board members Monday expressed clashing views of the need for the evaluation, with two questioning the need for it.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
