A federal rule change on counting school absences will have an impact on Beaufort County students. Superintendent Jeff Moss said the change will count absences starting on day one of school, whether or not a student is enrolled. Those absences, if not approved, could be a problem. “A student could be identified as chronic truant before they ever show up,” Moss said. A student is typically considered a truant if he or she has three unlawful absences in a row or five unlawful absences in one year.
Bluffton BBQ owner Ted Huffman said he has a “fire in his belly” — and it’s about more than barbecue. Huffman, a former Town Councilman, said that fire is his desire to serve the town that has been so good to him. He hopes to serve by winning a seat on council, where he believes his experience and perspective would make him an asset for the town. “Bluffton has given me a lot,” Huffman said. “The least I can do is give back. I love this town, the people.
A motion to order a forensic audit of Beaufort County School District finances failed by a 5-5 tie vote of the school board Tuesday night. Instead, at their next meeting board members will consider having the annual audit include a more detailed look at the district’s use of credit cards, also known as purchasing cards. The vote came after a lengthy discussion during what turned out to be a four-hour meeting.
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".
