Life isn’t easy for Rob Burroughs. His disabilities can slow him down, but they definitely don’t keep him down! Most days, regardless of the weather, he’s outside his camper working on bikes that he gives away. “Then give them to kids of low income families, people who don’t have the money to buy a decent bike,” explained Rob. Yes he repairs bicycles, but his favorites are the trikes for kids with handicaps.
It’s all about reading, writing and arithmetic… Oh, and rock wall climbing at Grayling Elementary! After years of fundraising for other groups, then P. E. teacher Scott Baker said. “Let’s fundraise for something here at the school!”“We could get two 46-foot sections for $14,000 each. We got four sections for $28,000,” said Mr. Baker. So, it was a success! Actually, moneys were raised in three weeks!
It’s the new year; a time to resolve, to make changes, maybe get in shape. If procrastinating has been your thing, you might need to get a calendar. The Winter Olympics are coming up in February, and yes, summer looms a few months down the road. But in the big picture, what’s the new year looking like from an astrology stand point? It seems Jupiter is in the sign of Scorpio, and according to Zach Weisbarth of Higher Self Book store, that means:“It challenges us to face any fears,” he says.
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".
