Folks at Friendship Animal Protective League expect this year to rescue more than 4,000 animals. “It’s going well,” said Friendship APL Executive Director Gregory Willey, at the helm for eight years of the 60-year-old organization at 8303 Murray Ridge Road in Elyria. “It’s a charity so it’s a funny thing to say. When I took over we averaged 1,100 animals a year. We take care of everything from cats and dogs to Guinea pigs, ferrets, hamsters, horses, pigs, cattle, an iguana, alligator.
The Rev. Marilyn Parker-Jeffries heard of a lack of music classes at Lorain City Schools and wondered how children could thrive academically. After all, education theorists claim there is a strong link between participation in music and academic achievement. Parker-Jeffries looked across the street from her New Creation Baptist Church, 1929 W. 23rd St. in Lorain, and wondered how to help underprivileged children who live there.
Sunday afternoons find 18 underprivileged youngsters learning to tickle the ivories at New Creation Baptist Church in Lorain. The fledgling Great Expectations Music program received $13,000 from two grants funded by money confiscated from criminals. That startup money bought electronic keyboards and drums, said Lorain County Prosecutor Dennis Will. When police departments find cash on drug raids, for example, a certain amount of the confiscated money must be used for education, Will said.
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".
