Liam Mason, a seventh-grade student at Immaculate Conception Catholic School, was named the winner of the Denton Breakfast Kiwanis Club Veteran's Day essay contest. The essay topic was "What a Veteran Means to Me on Veteran's Day" and Mason wrote about his great-grandfather's military service during World War II. Mason read his essay to nearly 4,000 audience members at the American Airlines Sky Ball Gala earlier this month. Mason also received a $500 college scholarship.
There comes a lull in every Thanksgiving celebration when you plop down on the couch and let out a satisfied sigh. The game is on and your team is winning. The kids are burning off their energy outside as they poke each other with sticks. You've already given thanks that Uncle Bobby didn't burn the house down when he deep-fried the turkey and you rub a belly filled with Aunt Georgina's "world famous" chocolate pie. But that's not always the reality for everyone.
On paper, she was a lifelong Denton resident and the daughter of Fred Moore, a civic leader and the city's first African-American principal. She was a teacher for nearly half her life and a staple in her Southeast Denton neighborhood. She passed away in 2007 at age 100. But her legacy can't be confined to paper. People who knew her, and even those who didn't, recognize the importance of affixing her name to a place where educators are carrying on her life's work.
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".
