Tracy Debald said last winter she was watching on TV how a town tied winter neck scarves around light poles and people could just take them as they needed. “If they felt they were cold, they were welcome to take one, and it’s theirs,” Debald said. “I just brought it up to our mission team because I thought it would be a good suggestion,” she said. “They all agreed and we decided to go with it.”Dana Hornbeck said there is a note attached to the scarves explaining what they are for.
“The reason why this program is such an asset to our region is there is a skill shortage in Southeast Kansas, but not only Southeast Kansas but also our nation,” said Linseh Johnson, director of workforce training, education, career training and personal enrichment at LCC. “This program is actually driven by our industries. They came in saying, ‘We need help.’ There has been a lack of structural fabrication training.
“They asked my students to create the floor plans and the elevations of the building. Somewhere they used to exist, but they can’t find them,” PHS CAD instructor Bruce Rea said. “So my classes are doing the floor plans and the elevations of the original structure, kind of as a community service project. “It’s a pretty good hands-on project where they can get out and measure and apply that to the CAD drawings. In the areas we can’t reach, we’re using the drone.
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".
