Preschoolers have a unique opportunity this fall to be a part of a classroom that could change their lives. At the Meyer Center for Special Children, a pilot program – Inclusion Works! – will bring students with special needs and their neurotypical peers together in a classroom that will prepare them for life. “Right now, we are opening two classes in the fall – one is for 3s and one is for 4s,” Heather Boyd, Director of Education at The Meyer Center, said.
When Riley Fincher-Foster arrives in Washington, D.C. later this month, she will be the voice of many in South Carolina. That’s a lot to ask for someone whose age is still in the single digits. Riley, age 8, lives in Fountain Inn. She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 4. Riley was chosen to join a delegation of children and celebrity advocates in Washington at the JDRF 2017 Children’s Congress on behalf of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
South Carolina parents now have more incentive to follow the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations for properly securing children in child passenger restraint systems. As of May 19, 2017, state law was toughened as well. “The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children remain rear facing until they are 2 years old,” Penny Shaw, program coordinator for Safe Kids Spartanburg, 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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
