RAYTOWN, Mo. -- When some people take a look at the newest American Girl Doll, they'll just see a doll. But for Dorinda Nicholson, she sees a symbol of something much bigger. “The American Girl Doll, Nanea, which depicts what it was like to be me and others like me,” said Nicholson, an author of four books and a member of the advisory panel for the new doll. Nicholson said Nanea’s appearance is authentic to the era in which she grew up.
SHAWNEE, Kan. -- Reese McDowell and his friends literally dodged a bullet on Friday night. “I leaned forward to turn up the music and as soon as I did that I heard this huge pop and shattering,” McDowell said. He was leaving a restaurant Friday night and on his way home, he said. He was about to turn onto Shawnee Mission Parkway when gunfire broke out. Keith Perisho, 20, of Olathe, was arrested and later charged for murder after they said he fired at a number of cars, including McDowell’s.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – It's one of the few times families can walk into a court room and it be the happiest day of their life. “For us to be able to not only help grow our family through adoption but to do it on such a special day has been really special to us,” said Leah Lunsford, a mother who finalized the adoption of her 13-year-old son Demaun on Friday. “As soon as he came to our house, I've considered him a son," Demaun's father Ken Lunsford said. "Just coming here is kind of symbolic, I think."
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".
