One of the three original buildings on Missouri State University's historic quadrangle — the oldest part of campus — is slated for a major overhaul. Hill Hall, completed in 1924, has been improved over the years, but much of the building has remained unchanged. It houses the College of Education and the Department of Psychology. MSU President Clif Smart said the renovations will improve access to offices and work areas, classrooms and student collaboration spaces.
Ozarks Technical Community College doesn't subscribe to the adage "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." OTC wants to know what community members don't like, what isn't working and how the college could do better. On Tuesday, Matt Simpson kicked off a series of listening sessions by asking a crowd at the Schweitzer Brentwood Branch Library to be forthcoming and honest in its assessment of Ozarks Technical Community College.
Near the entrance to Giboney Cave early Wednesday, sixth-grader Aaliyah Conness and seventh-grader Drew Replogle prepared to get muddy. Trekking more than 800 feet inside the wide cave opening at Doling Park, middle school students enrolled in the free "Outdoor U" course — part of Springfield Public Schools' summer program, Explore — walked along a spring-fed stream, studied rock formations and looked for bats and salamanders.
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".
