A big part of teaching elementary school kids is working with parents. Most are great, realizing the teacher is working to fulfill their child’s potential and trusting in the educator’s advice. I’ve taught elementary school in Murrieta for 20 years. In that time, I’ve had just a few parents get frustrated with me, contending I’m not being fair to their child.
Drop cloths run everywhere. People going in and out so much that you think an open house is going on. Then there’s the drilling, always the drilling. It is our summer and fall of destruction as we reached the critical point every longtime homeowner in Southwest Riverside County faces (There are plenty of us, given that our boom commenced some 30 years ago. ), to remodel or not to remodel. And while it may not be as vexing as Hamlet’s original dilemma, it is more expensive.
Barbara McLean remembers a song from the 1960s with the lyrics “travelin’ and living off the land.”It’s something so many Americans dream of, the land of the wild and the free — born free. McLean and her husband, Bob, wanted to hit the road in their ancient VW bus when they first met about a half-century ago, then life happened, marriage, jobs, home-ownership and four kids. As retirement approached (Bob is 69 and she’s 66), they started thinking once again of life on the road.
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".
