“Won’t you be my neighbor?”The words were chirped by Mr. Rogers. Now his animated predecessor, Daniel Tiger, sings the greeting to a wide audience of young, impressionable viewers. My kid gets it. So, at what point did we (adults) stop living by these words? I moved into my neighborhood in November and, craving community and neighbors I can wave to, I toured the front doors of my fellow homeowners. I would say half were unenthusiastic about answering the door. How did we get this way?
If raising one child “takes a village” then what does it take to raise 70 kids? The answer is one rich man in Boca Raton, Florida. Marc Bell, a financier and producer, has a sprawling mansion on Florida’s southeastern coast. He had the resources and infrastructure to withstand Hurricane Irma’s strength. But, as we know, others weren’t so lucky. That includes the foster kids at SOS Children’s Village.
Last week, vandals spray painted a mosque with hateful graffiti. It’s an unfortunate story that is playing out all across the nation. I got an email from one of the congregation’s leaders, Alam Ali:“Earlier this week the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Seattle chapter hosted the Muslims for Life blood drive to honor the nearly 3,000 victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Today we arrived at our mosque to find it vandalized with offensive graffiti.
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".
