In 1944, 20-year-old Staff. Sgt. Mims bailed out of the flaming aircraft seconds before it was obliterated in an explosion. Severely burned, he spent the rest of World War II in a German prisoner of war camp near Krems, Austria. He endured 13 months as a POW, including a 268-mile forced march, before he was liberated on May 5, 1945. Mims, 94, said Thursday that it will be a tremendous honor to receive the medal.
"Bill lived his life with a great curiosity. He was always interested," said his partner of 35 years, Tom Harrod of Dallas. "He didn't put blinders on as a French scholar. He looked beyond that." At SMU, Beauchamp developed courses with professors from specialties including religious and philosophical thought. "That allowed him to get engaged with things like gender studies and reading of the social text and how that related to gender and sexuality," Harrod said.
"There is no telling how many people he helped," said his daughter Dori Youngs of New Albany, Ind. "That was his life — helping people get clean and sober." Mark McFarland of San Diego said Daniels was like a second father to him. "Jimmy taught me how to treat people," said McFarland, a former Daniels Foundation board member and close friend. "I witnessed him minister to hundreds."
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".
