Eggs might be the answer for children facing severe malnutrition in a small African village, where Montana State University professors and students have been working to help villagers for two decades. Florence Dunkel, MSU associate professor of plant sciences and pathology, has been working with the 1,200 people of Sanambele in West Africa for 20 years. Working with her in the former French colony is Ada Giusti, MSU professor of French. “It worked,” Sisson said, and malaria was drastically reduced.
To Lindsay Ryder, it makes perfect sense to show films made by Montana’s African refugees on St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish, after all, were once refugees struggling to build a new life in America. The short documentaries, made by refugees now living in Missoula, will be shown Saturday night at Bozeman’s Rialto Theater. The New Neighbors Project Films & Music event is hosted by the nonprofit Gallatin Refugee Connections.
American Indian student enrollment grew by more than 6 percent this school year, a trend that’s exciting for Montana University System leaders who have made it a priority to encourage more Native Americans to try college, stay in school and graduate. Angela McLean, director of American Indian and Minority Achievement, told the Montana Board of Regents this month that the number of Indian students who stayed enrolled in Montana colleges, rather than dropping out, also grew by 1 percent.
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".
