Last week we introduced you to a group of siblings who are hoping to be adopted together: Faith, John, Stafani, Justice, and Lakiesha. As you learned then, I spent a lot of time with these children and a two-minute TV news story can never do them justice. That is why we dedicated a second Forever Family feature to further highlight how wonderful these children are! I was truly blown away, and felt a real sense of loss when I had to say goodbye to them.
Periods of light rain, fog and drizzle has been the order of the week so far, not to mention the arrival of much colder air. All of these conditions will remain in place for Thursday morning as one more batch of light rain is targeting our region during the early morning hours.
So you think you might be interested in adopting? How about two kids? Three? Four? Five? I know I know, you’re thinking I’m goofing around now, but hold on! This is a really special week, because I have a group of five young children, all siblings, who are not only looking for someone to call mom or dad, but are hoping to remain together as they find their forever home and forever family. I was so lucky to spend an afternoon with these children at a fun park and was blown away by them.
@wbtv_news FUTURECAST has consistently forecast rain to come in after sundown Saturday & be gone for most neighborhoods by sunrise Saturday. Outdoor weekend plans should not be disrupted much. https://t.co/A5gZJcaqYI
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".
