A Sumner police officer went above and beyond the call of duty and made a boy’s day. Q13 posted about the exchange, which was also shared on the Sumner Police Department’s Facebook page. Officer Sullivan had just finished responding to a call. He was driving through Oliver’s neighborhood and noticed the 3-year-old waiving at him. The officer stopped and Oliver ran into his house to retrieve his toy police car.
I wanted to share an extended Daily Dose of Kindness on the radio today because our network, CBS, has a series called “A More Perfect Union” where they share stories that show what unites us as Americans is far greater than what divides us. In today’s story, reporter Don Dahler shares how a T-shirt, a trip to Disney World, and a viral social media post brought two fathers together for a life-saving operation. It’s worth a watch if you have three minutes.
A South Texas middle school had a big problem when planning their “Breakfast with Dads” event. They knew some students don’t have a father in their life. One of the organizers, Kristina Dove, posted to social media: “Men needed. The reality of a great event like this is that a lot of our kids will not have a dad present. We are in need of at least 50 or more male mentors.”Instead of 50 dads, 600 surrogate fathers showed up to Billy Dade Middle School and filled the auditorium.
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".
