School librarians and supporters have a new platform for expressing their support for keeping school libraries open and fully staffed. Save School Librarians, a project of EveryLibrary, Follet Learning, and state library associations, is an online activist site where librarians, parents, and other interested parties can mobilize and find a solution. The launch of the campaign comes in the midst of ongoing threats to school library positions.
Looking for a surprisingly easy way to add years--and happiness--to your life? Then lace up your sneakers, and hit the pavement (or the nearest park). Walking briskly for just 25 minutes a day, it turns out, offers a number of health benefits. One of the biggest: It can cut the risk of heart attack by 50 percent, a new study from Germany found. And that's not all. Walking delays the aging process by repairing the DNA in our bodies, which may add anywhere from three to seven years to your life.
There are truly angels among us. Pastor Michael Clary was sure of this after he witnessed a horrific South Carolina car crash, in which a man in a totaled car miraculously survived. Does this ghostly image show a car crash survivor's guardian angel? https://t.co/CnMqptqFqx pic.twitter.com/bs3tYsJu3h— The Sun (@TheSun) December 14, 2015 The pastor wrote on Facebook that he had been in "prayer mode," asking God to save the man, who was curled into a fetal position near the scene.
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".
