Our community now has a code of conduct that may be the first of its kind in the nation, designed for the purpose of keeping our children safe from those who would exploit them sexually and otherwise.Adults will be asked to sign the code, vowing to adopt practices to govern our own actions around children and to be watchful for the actions of others.Will it stamp out pedophilias or other exploiters in our community? Probably not.
A particular online trade publication that arrives in my email inbox each day always includes a clever quote on its front page. This was Monday’s quote:“Criminal: A person with predatory instincts who has not sufficient capital to form a corporation.” — Howard Scott.My mind immediately connected that to two headlines from current news, one national and one local. The first was related to bold remarks from a U.S. senator during recent confirmation hearings.
A significant part of Americana and a gigantic piece of Bolivarcana will take a combined hit by the end of January.That’s when Rose Roweton hopes to be done with the closeout of the retail store operated by the family for going on 70 years and under her daily watch and care for about 48 years. It was Roweton’s Western Auto until 2003 and Roweton’s Home Center ever since.The process begins this week with Bolivar's Christmas Open House Weekend event to kick off the holiday season.
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".
