LAVEEN, AZ - For four straight weeks, the third graders from Paseo Pointe Elementary have paid a visit to the Kroc Center for a field trip. but what may seem just like fun and games, could mean the difference between life and death. "A lot of times parents and kids think they know how to swim, think they know how to be safe. But they don't really," says third grade teacher Brittney Downs. That's where the center's "Safe in the Water" program comes in.
PHOENIX - S.T.E.M. programs have taken our state's school system by storm, opening the fields of math and engineering to young minds. But building robots doesn't have to be all about programming and career planning. Sometimes it's just pure chaotic fun.When it comes to creating something unique whether it's your favorite alternative band to Apple computer, it all started in a garage. Does anybody remember BattleBots? The late 90's Long Beach phenomenon reached all the way out to the desert.
PHOENIX - Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the latest installment of the Skywalker Saga that hits theaters Thursday night and it brings out the most passionate sci-fi fans. But for some, It's about a whole lot more than pop culture. Star Wars isn't just a movie for those people; it's an escape. It's brought out the kid in fans for more than four decades. You could say that Peter Holzemer is one of those fans but you'd be wrong. He's much more than that. Oh, and don't call it a costume.
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".
