JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Hundreds of books were handed out to children living at the Cleveland Arms Apartments Thursday as part of a local after-school reading initiative called Books and Burgers. It is designed to help nurture the body and mind of children. On Thursday, First Coast News partnered up with the St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church to donate 1,000 books. The program started two years ago. Organizers say it's having a profound impact.
School can no doubt be tough -- but for thousands of students here on the First Coast not only do they have to worry about grades and peer pressure, they also have to worry about where they will sleep at night. More than 2,000 students in Duval County are currently homeless. Sabon Greene used to be one of those students. "Nobody knew," Sabon said. "When it happened, I didn't tell anyone." Sabon Greene is a junior at the University of North Florida and an aspiring engineer.
A Jacksonville woman is suing the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), an umbrella group that governs sporting competitions for hundreds of thousands of kids across the country. She says the organization failed to ban a high-profile coach despite having “reasonable cause to believe” he sexually abused her years earlier, court records show. First Coast News began to tell Sarah Powers-Barnhard's story in May.
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".
