The Terracotta Army is known as one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century, and starting this Saturday, you can see a few of pieces of the collection for yourself at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibit showcases more than 100 original pieces that are more than 2200 years old. They were discovered back in 1974 in the massive burial ground of China's first emperor, Qin Shihuang.
The Oak Knoll Middle School student, who loves to read, recently learned about the Little Free Library movement, which encourages book exchanges among neighbors. He took the initiative to establish a Little Free Library in his own neighborhood in Hanover County. He got HHHunt Homes on board to build the little library, and Masim even used his own savings to buy more than 150 books to keep the library stocked. This is the only thing Masim wanted for his 13th birthday, which was a few weeks ago.
What used to be a gas station on Nine Mile Road in Church Hill is now a charming cafe. However, the Front Porch Cafe offers a lot more than what you see on the menu. It offers a safe space, training, and most importantly, hope for an entire community. Tiana Mitchell stays busy here at the Front Porch Cafe, doing a little bit of everything. Frankly, that's the way she likes it. "The environment is great. I love everyone here; I feel like family," said Mitchell. Technically, the 16-year-old is family.
I’m officially in love - and my love’s name is “Ferdinand!” This handsome 8-year-old captured my heart today during the noon show! He is up for adoption at the @RichmondSPCA . I may have to get him for myself. Ferdinand Redditte. That has a nice ring to it...#rva#nbc12andmehttps://t.co/Yd4oSqvfTa
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".
