Leandra Rees’s fifth-grade class at Oak View Elementary School in Silver Spring, Maryland, is the November Class of KidsPost. Many of her 21 students admire their parents, have their eyes glued to YouTube and want to travel the world. The kids had different — and specific — ideas for what kind of job they want when they’re older. This is our third Class of KidsPost for the school year. We will publish one each month.
A diagnosis of a scary-sounding disorder at a young age can cause fear and panic, but for a pair of twins, it inspired them to help others. Matthew Denchfield, 12, of Potomac , Maryland, was diagnosed at age 4 with amblyopia (pronounced am-blee-OH-pea-uh), also known as lazy eye. The disorder causes a miscommunication between the brain and the eyes, resulting in decreased vision in one eye. Symptoms are sometimes noticeable: One eye can wander off-center.
Fiji’s prime minister called for a sense of urgency in the fight against global warming Monday, telling negotiators at climate change talks in Bonn, Germany, that “we must not fail our people.”The talks are the first major global climate conference since President Trump announced that the United States will pull out of the 2015 Paris accord unless he can get a better deal.
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".
