First-graders from Kingsbury Elementary School joined Tim Rochford, owner of Burrage Mansion, city officials and other dignitaries to celebrate Old Glory at a flag-raising ceremony Friday, Feb. 2. Rochford told the audience he was inspired to install the flag pole at the historic property on Crescent Avenue by the story of Mary Fackler, a Kingsbury first grade teacher who helped inspire the tradition of reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in classrooms across the country.
By Shaheen ZakariaWhat makes a city great? Not just good or a functional one, but a really great one. A city that people admire, wish for their city to be like and learn from. This is an interesting question, and who else is better equipped to define a great city than a woman! Dr. Shaheen Zakaria is a practicing physician and a board member at Redlands Peace Academy. She is vice president of the Redlands Area Interfaith Council and a member of the Redlands Human Relations Commission.
The recent run of balmy days might have us wondering whether summer ever ended, but it hasn’t stopped some from dressing their homes in their holiday best. As they have every year since 1990, Chris and Joe Bauza have filled their yard with the hallmarks of Christmas — carolers, reindeer, snow-people and more. They began the installation in early November, Chris Bauza said, working weekends until the yard was filled with about 30 lawn decorations.
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".
