Is it really time for Thanksgiving? I am not sure if I am ready for what comes after Thanksgiving, but my mouth is watering for Thanksgiving dinner. My wife and I were talking the other day about all the places we’ve been on Thanksgiving. We try our best to catch up with family and enjoy some delicious food.When I was growing up there would always be a huge gathering of family and friends at our house.
I grew up in Virginia Beach where there were lots of military families. If you or a family member has served in the military, allow me to say, “Thank you.” I admire, respect, and appreciate your service to our great nation. I spent a lot of time around military leaders in the Boy Scouts. We had a big troop with sixty-plus boys, and I have lots of wonderful scouting memories.We had several scoutmasters who were colonels and they ran our troop like the military.
The Thomasville Rotary Club offers high school and community college students an opportunity to shadow a professional for a day. While I deal with cooperative education and internships at East Davidson, I had never heard of this program until this year. When the Rotary Club contacted me about getting some East students involved, I found a few candidates and signed them up.The students got the opportunity to spend the morning with a professional in a field of interest to them.
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".
