KENSINGTON, Md. - The beginning of the school year is closer than you think, and that means a new school will be opening its doors in Montgomery County. On Sept. 5, Silver Creek Middle School will welcome students for the first time. The new space includes a weight room, several science labs and an outdoor learning area. The school's principal said a collaborative learning style was the inspiration for much of the school's design.
GAITHERSBURG, Md. - One Montgomery County community is taking steps to make sure residents' email addresses are protected. At a recent meeting, Gaithersburg officials talked about how under the Freedom of Information Act, the city would be required to provide residents' email addresses if asked. This includes people who have signed up for services run by the city, like Gaithersburg's alert system. That's why council members decided to bring the issue to the Maryland Municipal League.
ROCKVILLE, Md. - As children develop, it can be hard to determine if their actions are just a part of growing up or if there's a deeper mental issue at hand. That's why the Montgomery County Collaboration Council and Cornerstone Montgomery are partnering together to hold a Mental Health First Aid class. The workshop is for anyone who works with kids. Participants learn how to identify anxiety, depression, eating disorders and behavioral disorders like ADHD.
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".
