Chico >> The sound of cheering and music could be heard across the Pleasant Valley High campus Friday morning as much of the student body gathered in the gym to cheer on the star basketball players of the day. The crowd roared when Max Geddes made one shot, and then another, eagerly slamming a basketball into the hoop from his wheelchair. Geddes smiled as his classmates chanted his name, and varsity basketball players offered him high-fives. “It’s great to be here,” Geddes said.
Chico >> Chico Junior High student Alondra Hernandez no longer brings a workbook to class, instead the eighth-grader accesses her math assignments digitally through a Chromebook laptop provided by the school. “You don’t have to carry your notebook for math or science around,” Hernandez said. “You just bring this.”That is now an option for hundreds of Chico Unified School District students as the district moves closer to its goal of providing a computer or laptop to every student.
Chico >> Pivot North Valley Charter will be staying in Chico for at least two years, as long as the school meets the requirements laid out by Chico Unified School District. The Chico Unified School District board of trustees approved a memorandum of understanding with Pivot Wednesday, authorizing the school to operate for at least two years as long as it makes progress in increasing student success.
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".
