Thanksgiving is all about tradition. For many, that means turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, with most of the meal homemade.But what's traditional for some is unconventional to others, and TBC Media wanted to know what other traditions our readers might have.
Being a teenager can be hard enough, navigating a world of school responsibilities, changing friend dynamics and the dreaded "What do you want to do after high school and college?" question. But for pregnant teens and teen moms, the challenges they face can be harder and, too often, they face them alone.So a support group like Teen Success Inc. is a godsend for the girls who need time with other young mothers who understand what they are going through.
After a decade of success, many event organizers would rest on their laurels and operate on autopilot. For Bakersfield Comic-Con, though, its organizer takes on the heroic effort of topping the bigger and better every year.Like the Incredible Hulk growing bigger and stronger — and outgrowing his clothes — Bakersfield Comic-Con has continued to add more guests, more vendors and more activities, moving from one venue to another to fit its growing attendance.
Teen Success, Inc. is a support group for teen moms that helps them overcome challenges and stay on track to graduate high school. With the group's format changing and some girls leaving, leaders decided to throw them a gala: https://t.co/xElkBLuNIr
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".
