OLATHE, Kan. -- Heritage Christian Academy's girls volleyball team is in the spotlight for their ability to face adversity and rise to the top. "We laugh a lot, and we joke around a lot, but we know when to be serious," senior Kate Allen said. Allen describes her teammates as a bunch of goofy girls with big hearts who love God and love to play ball. Life is full, but this team has been tested. In 2015, just days before the start of a new school year, everything changed.
OSAWATOMIE, Kan. -- Fox 4 first introduced you to Osawatomie's Jacob Anderson in August, and a recent check on the young man shows his hard work is paying off. Anderson was featured on Dhomonique Rick's Reaching for Excellence segment for his work honoring military personnel and veterans -- who graduated from his high school. Through his research, he found more than 500 alumni served in some branch of the military. He wanted to make sure their legacies live on forever.
NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A North Kansas City High School junior is making big moves in the name of his family. "I call myself a person that works hard and knows I got to work hard to get what I want," Adetomiwa "Tommy" Adebawore said. "There's no easy way; there's no short cut. You gotta really push through and work hard at what you want." When you look at the 16-year-old, you'll likely see an academic and an athlete. But there's one thing that will take you by surprise.
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".
