Federal Way FC Coaching Director Fawzi Belal is a visionary. You have probably walked by him over a dozen times at the Commons Mall or stood behind him at the Starbucks on South 240th Street where he works nearby and never even knew it. Here is the thing, Belal has returned the city back into the soccer town it was years ago.
Editor’s note: This is part two of a three-part series on Federal Way resident Lakota Bisaillon’s martial arts journey to China. Part one can be found in the Sept. 8 edition of the Mirror. The year 2010 is the reason Bisaillon is currently in China. It started out incredible. Bisaillon’s mother Mary Delacruz met her now husband, who helped the family get out of the Kent slums and moved into an ideal Federal Way home and neighborhood.
Federal Way residents Johnny Adams and his wife, Heather Nixon, were throwing comic book character ideas back and forth at one another one day, and the process began to consume Adam’s every thought. So, on Christmas of 2016, Adams could not take it anymore. He went into the couple’s office in their home and began drawing the characters’ ideas that hijacked his every thought. When Adams was 18, he wrote and illustrated his first comic book.
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".
