On Saturday, Chris McKnight, a veteran teacher in Boca Raton, will sit among a row of desks in a tense classroom of teenagers, taking the SAT just like them. The stakes will be high for everyone: Students’ scores determine where they will go to college and can affect how much in scholarships they get. But the teens can take the test several times; McKnight has just one shot, this year at least. He needs to score in the top 20 percent to qualify for a $6,000 annual bonus from the state.
The shuttering of a Boynton Beach middle school, the first school closure in the Palm Beach County School District in 25 years, will prompt one of the biggest attendance zone changes in the county’s history. But despite the enormity of the change, the district wants to hold a public hearing and take the proposal to the School Board quickly, so families who don’t want to attend their newly assigned school can apply to a magnet school or other application program, officials said on Tuesday.
The Palm Beach County School Board agreed on Wednesday not to join 14 Florida school districts in suing the state over a law that distributes millions of dollars each year to charter schools. The board decided instead to spend up to $150,000 to hire Boies Schiller Flexner, a national firm with offices in Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood, to sue the state.
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".
