- Basketball and dance; both involve athletics and muscle stretching. There's frustration when dancers miss a move and a sense of victory when they succeed. It's a dichotomy that's part of a new video about cyber bullying from the University Of South Florida. "Dance isn't necessarily a thing to be seen as entertainment. It can also be used for social issues and to talk about things that are really present today," said USF dance student Brent Townend. Cyber bullying is the social message.
- University of South Florida student Stephanie Campos has a four-legged pupil of her own. ‘Petey’ is living with her for now, but he isn't hers for keeps; she's training him as part of the Southeastern Guide Dogs puppy-raiser program. "It's been great,” she said. “He has been going outside with me. We've been doing our training. He gets all the love and attention from everyone that walks by.”Petey is the first puppy in the program to be raised in a dorm. He will spend about a year with Campos.
- Young athletes are running for a better future, doing positive things on and off and the race track. "Be a leader in the classroom," Jonathan Terry says to inspire his kids to be great. Jonathan is the head coach of My Brother's Keeper, an all-boys track and field club in Riverview. "To keep them off the street and to make sure they are doing something positive every day in their life," Jonathan said. The goal is to give the boys life skills so that they can become community leaders.
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".
