Despite the threats in Washington to affordable housing programs and funding for homeless services, Ohio has made real progress in fighting homelessness over the past few years. This is important to remember, especially as we pause to count our blessings during the Thanksgiving holiday. Progress in the fight to end homelessness wouldn’t have been possible without advocacy groups like COHHIO standing up for the people who politicians too often overlook.
Now that I am retired, I imagined that I did not need my memory anymore. What do retired people need to remember anyway! That big meeting at the office? What office, what meeting? I’m going fishing. So where is my fishing pole? Where is my favorite fishing spot? Where are the keys for the car? Where are the keys for the boat? I thought some nice empty space would help in retirement and so I gave up my memory. Not really on purpose: It just looks better if I come up with an excuse. Now what?
I was at a township meeting the other night and I was pleased at what happened. There was a representative from the state auditor’s office to demonstrate the new open checkbook from the state that’s on the web. I was very pleased to find out that the trustees have put the financial records for American Township on this program. This shows the residents where your tax money is used. We ought to be very thankful for the trustees that we have.
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".
