PHOENIX — Celso Salinas-Mireles couldn’t wait to show people the yellow school bus sitting in his parent’s back yard. He would gleam with excitement and possibility every time he talked about it. He and his wife, Ileana Salinas-Mireles, bought it last year and planned to turn it into an RV. They wanted to use it to travel across the country spreading their music with migrant communities. He played the guitar and she sang songs of social justice and love. Last week, those dreams were shattered.
A national Phi Delta Kappa/Gallup poll found that most parents don’t have a clear understanding of what charter schools are or how they operate.Half of the poll respondents said they thought charters were not public schools. Forty-eight percent thought they can teach religion.
PHOENIX -- A ban on the state's Mexican-American Studies courses is back in court and reviving debate over the value of the curriculum prohibited under a 2010 law. At issue in the trial in Tucson, Arizona, where the courses originated, is whether part of the state's law that ultimately led to the suspension of the Mexican-American studies program was enacted with discriminatory intent and is unconstitutional. Signed by then-Gov.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
