CASA just took a leap in the right direction to serve children in foster care after expanding locations in the 2nd Judicial District in Arkansas. Although the Court Appointed Special Advocates, who publicly supports children in the state’s foster care system, serve children in Mississippi County, there is now a facility there and an advocate coordinator. Executive Director, Jeremy Biggs of CASA said the non-profit serves less than half of the children in foster care in Mississippi County.
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge went to Jonesboro High School Wednesday to launch a new program. The program is called Prescription for Life. Jonesboro High is the second location in the state that Rutledge has visited. She is implementing the program in schools across the state to fight the epidemic of opioid use and abuse. “This epidemic of opioid use and abuse is not limited to any part of our state,” Rutledge said at the program launch.
The old Bono School grounds will soon go from a neglected piece of land to a useful one. “The bottom line is the buildings have deteriorated and become unusable and unsafe,” Bono mayor Danny Shaw said. The 11 acres of land that sits on School Street brings back a lot of memories to Bono natives, especially to the last graduating class from Bono High School in 1968 before the school consolidated with Westside.
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".
