SAN ANTONIO - More than 100 kids learned how to master the use of high flying drones at a hands-on expo Saturday. They learned from drone experts as part of a nonprofit organization called Learning Through Education and Application by Partnership, or LEAP. They were taught about the rules of the sky, how to build a drone by hand, and were able to practice a simulation before flying an actual drone. "If you don't introduce these kids to this stuff at a young age, how will they know?"
Families in Sutherland Springs are still trying to make sense of the horrific tragedy that took their loved ones from them on Sunday, when a gunman killed 26 members of the First Baptist Church. "You realize they're never going to grow up, they're never going to get any older," said Sandy Ward, who lost her two granddaughters and her daughter-in-law.
No matter how demanding the circuit training at Sherri Fitness is, the ladies who attend her boot camp workout classes can agree that the hardest part of the workout is just getting there. "Being a full-time working mom with two children, it's definitely hard to just put in time," said Ashley Mora, a client at the gym. However, she's made time to go. "The best time to workout could be any time," said Sherri Braxton, owner and trainer at Sherri Fitness.
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".
