The Spirit & Place dialogue series called “Powerful Conversations on Race” uses passages from a reading list created after a white supremacist shot nine black bible study members in their Charleston, South Carolina church two years ago. Indianapolis’ Spirit & Place – the civic engagement organization – is hosting a series of conversations on race over the next year.
The Indy Hunger Network is teaching children to cook healthy meals on a budget. Several kids in a far east side food desert participated in the program, Cooking Matters For Kids. The nonprofit started teaching Cooking Matters classes to food insecure adults in 2015, and this was its first course for children. It wrapped up at Carriage House East Apartments, where more than half of the units in the complex are subsidized.
Sharrona Moore learned at an early age growing food doesn’t have to be difficult. As a child she spent weeks in the summer on a great uncle’s farm discovering the joy of gardening and eating vegetables straight from the fields. In the years since, Moore, 44, has grown her own herbs or vegetables on her patio or in her yard in Lawrence, in the Indianapolis metro area. Most recently, she’s turned her gardening prowess to a project to help her far east side Indianapolis neighborhood.
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".
