American schoolchildren take a pledge that includes the words, “one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” The signers of the Declaration of Independence swelled the chorus of union with the final words, “we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor.”Throughout American history, we have been at our best when we have tackled tough problems together.
Collectively, public schools identified more than 1.3 million homeless students in the 2015-16 school year. Although that number is just 2.5 percent of all public school enrollment, it represents an estimated 30 percent of all school-age children living in extreme poverty. Homelessness is a threat to everything young students want to achieve in life, including strong attachments to family and community, graduation from high school and college, employment, and civic engagement.
In an era of gridlock and hyper-partisanship — when avoiding a federal government shutdown is cause for celebration — it’s easy to be pessimistic about government’s ability to change people’s lives for the better. Count us among the optimists. As a Democrat who served two terms as Mayor of Philadelphia and a Republican who served as White House Domestic Policy Director under President George W. Bush, we know that progress is possible. We see it happening all around us.
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".
