LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - School starts back in about a month which means so many tough decisions and one tough decision for parents of kindergartners is whether or not to redshirt them. Redshirting means holding your child back a year to allow them extra time for social, intellectual and physical growth. For every study saying it's okay, there's another study that says it's not. Right now, if your child turns 5-years-old by August 1, they are ready for kindergarten.
It's a common old wives' tale we've all heard and maybe once you even follow. You or your kids eat lunch and then you wait 30 minutes before jumping into the pool to cool off. But does it really make a difference? Monique Love and her 14-year-old son Shawn head to the pool at least twice a week in the summer. When at the pool, they tend to stay as long as possible so they bring snacks, lunch, and drinks along with them. "We kinda sit for 30 minutes," Love said.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Adoption stories are difficult to tell, but it’s part of the harsh reality of state foster care. One little boy has been in the custody of the state since birth, with numerous special needs. 6-year-old Jabarious is your typical child. He is curious, playful, and innocent. During a trip to the Wonder Place, Jabarious was mesmerized by the ball machine built into the wall. He stood for minutes and minutes just looking in wonder. Louis Bailey is an adoption special for DHS.
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".
