Kitty Warren, 57, of Georgetown, said she believes her father, James “Jimbo” Kern, was one of the first male feminists. He made her understand that women have the power to do anything they put their minds to. When she was 11 growing up in Bedford, Ind., her dad had a brilliant idea. Warren could get an afternoon job as a newspaper carrier for the The Bedford Daily Times Mail. There was one problem with that idea: In 1971, the newspaper did not allow girls to deliver the paper. It didn’t matter.
Your dad probably deserves a better Father's Day gift than an ugly tie. We want to hear what makes him so great. The Dallas Morning News is asking you, our readers, to tell us about your dads â€” your memories, things he's done for you, or what you'd say to the men (or women) who've played a father's role in your life. Share your Father's Day story with us through our form and it could be published in The News.
It has been almost one year since five Dallas officers were killed in the line of duty by a lone gunman in the streets of downtown Dallas. Within the photos from that night and the days after are stories. The Dallas Morning News hopes to share stories from individuals who were in downtown Dallas and photographed the night of the July 7, 2016, ambush.
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".
