Life can be difficult, and Ann McDonald knows that well. She survived cancer, but lost her husband to leukemia. Yet, she still greets each day with a big smile and a positive attitude. And she puts it all on full display as a crossing guard in The Colony. McDonald sent NBC 5 a selfie showing herself with an ear-to-ear grin and sunglasses with stars around her eyes. She introduced herself this way, "Hi! I'm a school crossing guard in The Colony. I make it fun!"
A summer camp in Fort Worth wrapped up its inaugural week, and what the Fort Worth Independent School District students accomplished is something good. The 27 seventh and eighth graders from the Young Women’s Leadership Academy, Young Men’s Leadership Academy and J.P. Elder Middle School were the first to attend the first-ever Junior Medical School summer camp. They graduated Friday after spending five days getting a glimpse of the medical field.
The success is in a student named Xavier Thompson. He wants a career in the culinary industry and the FWFW is helping to fund that goal. Proceeds from the annual three-day festival support the FWFW Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for grant programs and culinary scholarships. The foundation awarded Thompson scholarship money to pay for studies at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. The investment is paying off.
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".
