It’s a small room, much smaller than most class-rooms, but the state-of-the-art equipment within its walls may just be the future of journalism. The Multi-Media Lab at Hood College contains a cramped recording studio, where interviews can be live-streamed and podcasts produced. This little studio, built with $20,000 in seed money from the Delaplaine Foundation, along with a $10,000 contribution from alumni, is one of the bright spots in local scholastic journalism.
For nearly 70 years, the spacious brick building on the first block of East Church Street served as the central office for Frederick County Public Schools. But in its final years of use for the school system, the building was stretched to its seams. With offices tucked into corners and closets, the school system needed more room and moved its central offices to much more spacious offices on East Street. Now, a different kind of education continues here.
ROMANCE flowed from the doors of Camperdown’s Full Bloom florist on Wednesday as bouquets of colourful flowers were delivered across the shire for Valentine’s Day. Owner Karen Gardner said it was a busy day with flowers delivered to Lismore and Derrinallum in the north and Cobden, Terang and Port Campbell in the south. “One lucky lady received 42 long-stemmed roses – one for every year of marriage, which is pretty romantic,” she said.
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".
