Third- and fourth-graders at Lincoln Elementary were making a very different kind of noise in the classroom on Monday afternoon. The students were busy testing sounds and assembling their own pan flutes as a part of the new Crazy 8 Math Club, founded by Diane Sande and lead with assistance from Melinda Masters, Ann Prichard and Sarah Grabowski. The first eight-week program had 36 students sign up for one of two after-school class times this semester, Sande said.
The Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock Board of Education agreed to offer terms of a shared superintendent position to the Nashua-Plainfield district school board. Monday’s discussion means the district will offer terms for the N-P Board of Education to consider at the district’s October meeting, which will occur a week before the RRMR board meets again in October.
Fall registration for a free American Sign Language class is closed — but organizers have had so much interest, a spring semester class is already being planned for. Deaf education teacher Jessie Menchak said the ASL beginners’ course, scheduled to begin in October, received 63 signups. Her first course in December 2016 had 15 people sign up. Deaf/hard-of-hearing individuals, family members of deaf/hard-of-hearing individuals and teachers/audiologists were prioritized for this October’s class.
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".
