Kinslea Johnson, 7, cradled a tiny, 2-week old puppy named Cypher to her chest next to a row of kennels at the Humane Society Adoption Center of Monroe. She had just delivered a load of donations to the shelter. The donations included Pedigree Complete dog food, training pads, boxes of Milkbones and other dog treats, dog shampoo, dish soap, bleach, blankets, toys and other supplies.
Kids in foster care often have only the clothes on their backs when they enter the system. When representatives from the Department of Children and Family Services take them from their homes, often in the middle of the night, there is no time to pack. Sara McBroom is trying to change that with the non-profit Suitcases for New Places, which she started in February.
Every year since Joshua Berry disappeared on September 13, 2012, his family has gathered at his home in Rayville to commemorate the day with a wiener roast and lantern release. Jessica Berry, his wife, and three daughters Alyssa, Juliette and Joshlyn, still live there. The family has not stopped looking for him. Because it's been five years since her husband disappeared, the family can get a death certificate for him. That would mean his children could receive social security.
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".
