When Gladys Mezrahi was 15, she convinced her principal to let her raise the money for constructing a new basketball and volleyball court at her school. If she collected enough, she would be allowed to graduate, even though she didn’t go to class. Mezrahi organized the bingo night at the Tequendama Hotel in Bogota. More than 1,500 attended, she raised enough money to build the baskeball gym and volleyball courts, and she graduated. “We made the deal but nobody knew.
Growing up, Andres Restrepo was taught by his family to give back to others. When his cousins, Camilo and Santiago Jaramillo, 20, approached him with the idea of starting a fashion brand named Palm Era, he agreed and suggested that they should include a charity factor to the business. “We were always raised to [be helpful]. If you are doing OK yourself, and you have the opportunity to help someone else, why not?” said Restrepo, 26, who lives in Orlando.
Adriel Fernandez and his girlfriend, Estephanie Arrieta, were among the first group of 30 customers to walk into a BrandsMart on Thursday afternoon after waiting for four hours. The line went around the corner, while hundreds of people waited patiently for their turn to be at the front. “We had to take advantage of the early timing and prices and purchase the stuff first, and then we can go home and eat the turkey,” said Fernandez who was looking for TVs at the Miami Gardens store.
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".
