Public schools in Wichita have a new program in place to encourage students to perform well, athletically and academically. It does so by bringing an athlete's competitive spirit into their school work. "We're launching a new initiative called the Superintendent's Challenge," says Wichita Public Schools Executive Director of Public Affairs and Special Projects, Terrell Davis. Davis says it's an initiative for student athletes to perform well academically.
All that caked on debris on your air conditioning unit could be costing you a lot of dough. "It's costing you a lot of money not to keep your unit clean," said Mike Watson, owner of Mike Watson Heating and Cooling. "I'd say it's cutting your efficiency in half." Eyewitness News followed Watson as he cleaned air conditioning units in Wichita. Many of the units had collected cotton and other debris on the exterior filter and Watson says it was all collected within the past year.
Three weeks after Bethany Fauteux gave birth to her son via C-section, she was back at work at a New Bedford preschool — chasing after toddlers and getting down on the floor to rub their backs at naptime. Fauteux would have stayed home longer, both to heal after surgery and bond with her son, but the preschool didn’t offer paid time off, and she couldn’t afford to miss another paycheck. “It was hell,” said Fauteux, whose son is now almost 4. “The physical pain didn’t even touch the emotional pain.
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".
