Teachers from G.D. Rogers Garden Elementary School in Bradenton, Fla., are under fire after their offensive Facebook discussion was found by a parent and sent to Bay News 9. "I'm fairly convinced that one of my students may be the evolutionary link between orangutans and humans," one of the teacher's wrote, according to the conversation obtained by the station.
Okay, seriously now, what is with animals these days? First a baby seal waddles its way out of a bay in New Zealand, through a cat door, into a house, and takes a nap on a couch. Then, a New Jersey cable guy finds a 500-pound bear snoozing in the basement of a customer's house. Now, a woman in China reportedly came home to find an adorable red panda hanging out in the corner inside her house.
In what truly must be an act of divine intervention and celestial balancing, there seem to be just as many adorable baby panda sightings lately as celebrity divorces. First, there were the adorable baby pandas who snuggled together in a crib. Then these love-struck red pandas couldn't seem to unlock from their passionate embrace, much to the amusement of onlookers. And last week, another tiny panda was found hanging out in the corner of a woman's living room in China.
Office building under construction, so sometimes the elevator halls smells like rubber.
Guy: Yeah it's just what happens when you work with iron.
Me: They should tell us then so we don't think we're going to die!
Guy: Yeah, but you are going to die someday.
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".
