HARTSELLE — There was a short, celebratory moment at Barkley Bridge Elementary last Friday when news arrived from the U.S. Department of Education that the school’s Blue Ribbon Lighthouse status was renewed for another five years.“This reflects how hard the students, faculty and parents are working, but we have a larger goal,” Principal Tina Towers said.Barkley Bridge, which consistently has been one of the top performing schools in the state, is working to become a national leader in...
MOULTON — If another history of the Auburn-Alabama game is written in the near future, Andy Montgomery would be a good source.The retired teacher and coach has attended every Iron Bowl since 1957, and “if the creek doesn’t rise and I’m still here, I’ll attend my 61st straight on Saturday.”Top-ranked Alabama and No. 6 Auburn meet Saturday at 2:30 p.m. in a game with state and national implications.
Faculty and students at Leon Sheffield Magnet Elementary School were feeling blue Friday, but it was a cause for celebration rather than sadness.About 350 third-, fourth- and fifth-graders packed the school's gymnasium — along with former students, school officials, parents, and civic and elected officials — to celebrate the school's gaining National Blue Ribbon status from the U.S. Department of Education.
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".
