Emmanuel Kalule was raised by a single mother and for that he has never known a father figure in his life. At nine years, he started the struggle to find a proper role model that later introduced him to other youth with similar frustrations. At 16 years, he would spend much of his weekends with youth in different communities, especially ghettos, where he would share experiences. And it is this that perhaps gave him the build to grow into a useful young man.
In Sarah Kiyimba’s compound, a structure started being built in 1990, an idea her husband Sulaiman Kiyimba, had conceived after a visit to Hotel Brovad Nairobi. Impressed by its beauty, customer care and general inviting atmosphere, Kiyimba desired to setup a similar hotel in his hometown Masaka.
Dwight Bigala learnt well and got into entrepreneurship at an early age. Before he completed law school in 2009, he began a company he called CFS and has since built on what started small. Currently, he is a technology lawyer and Rotarian. “I sought out a way to prepare early enough for the challenges of life,” he says as he strokes his rimless glasses to put them in place. “I live by the adage; ‘tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today’.
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".
