Donald Trump Jr. will make a fundraising appearance for Kris Kobach’s campaign for governor next month in Johnson County. The Kansas Republican announced the fundraising event for Kobach, slated for Nov. 28, in an email Monday. The move signals the Trump family’s entrance into the heated 2018 race for the GOP nomination for governor. The event includes a fundraising dinner and VIP reception, according to the email.
Tonganoxie police said Monday that three sisters missing from a foster home for 51 days may be in danger, and they are asking for help finding a “person of interest.” The girls, all under the age of 16, were seen Saturday in the Kansas City area with a man police identified as Rigoberto “Rico” Reyes Rangel, 48. “If they are with Rico, we believe they are in danger,” the police statement said.
Authorities found a youth this week who had vanished from the state’s foster care system more than 300 days ago. Scores are still missing, including an older teenager who has been gone for more than two years. The number of runaway foster children in Kansas slowly fell during the first few years of Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration, but then more than doubled from fall 2015 to August 2017, far outpacing the overall growth of the foster care system.
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".
