As a boy, Eric Pfeiffer Newman's grandfather gave him a one-cent piece. It would be the start of a lifelong career studying money, and Mr. Newman would become one of the foremost numismatists in the country. "He found numismatics to be a window into history, economics, art and his interest in the world," said Mr. Newman's son, Andy. "He was always interested in how things worked, whether it was the economy, a printing press, a language or a scientific instrument."Mr.
The tradition of 100 Neediest Cases campaign dates to 1922, when civic leaders formed the Christmas Bureau. The Post-Dispatch has partnered with the program for more than five decades, renaming it 100 Neediest Cases in 1954. HOW IT WORKS • Social service agencies, working through the United Way, identify more than 10,000 cases of needy families. Volunteers then select 100 cases to be profiled in the newspaper to raise awareness.
ST. LOUIS • In 1991, Forest Park Southeast was a neighborhood reeling. Although smack-dab in the middle of the city, poverty, violence and neglect isolated it from the rest of St. Louis, including the adjacent Central West End, a generous spread of mansions and boutiques.The 4300 block of Gibson Avenue was among the more troublesome stretches, flush with guns, heroin and cocaine dealers. A beat cop at the time called Gibson a "premier street" for violent crime.
Saying it's fun to write an obit sounds insensitive. But learning about someone with such a rich life and sharing that with an audience is not a bad way to spend the day. https://t.co/YnFp2F2hi9 via @stltoday
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".
