It has been a year of immeasurable gratitude. For a man diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease more than 20 years ago and his family, the past year has helped restore hope, faith and a future they didn’t see just 12 months ago. David Harris Jr. and his family were at a place last year where they never truly left the house. His wife walked to the grocery store. His youngest daughter found rides to work. His oldest, to college classes. Otherwise, they stayed home. Too often, they missed church.
Imagine sitting at your Thanksgiving Day table on Thursday, and in true fashion, everyone starts talking about what they're thankful for. And it feels awfully routine until someone says: for everything that went wrong. There are awkward shifts at the table, eyes are diverted, and the mashed potatoes are passed around as they continue. Well, because, Thanksgiving. For everything that challenged me. For every single day that something didn't go my way.
The Wildflower Tour is about girls building self confidence, and about helping parents bridge communication with their teen daughters. It is about helping teen girls who desire "greater," and who don't know how to find it. Heather Anne Grubbs will help them do this on Dec. 9 at Montgomery Preparatory Academy for Career Technologies (MPACT).
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".
