GUILFORD --Students at Guilford High School are coming together to campaign for the end of the "r" word. The campaign is part of an effort to raise awareness about the dehumanizing and hurtful effects of the word “retard." Students said their intent is to spread the word to end that word. Those wanting to participate can sign a pledge and get a wristband in return, which is supposed to serve as a reminder to be more aware of the language they use and how it may impact others.

When it comes to calling a snow day, no one calls it quite like Rhonda. "Guess who... yes it's Rhonda, and I am so sorry to call and wake you up," says Rhonda. Rhonda is the automated robot who calls in snow days for schools in Newington. "I think that was hilarious," says Katherine Simone, a 5th grader at Martin Kellogg Middle School. Rhonda has become a celebrity of sorts in Newington. "Who are we kidding," says Rhonda. "I am really not sorry at all but I am programed to be polite… blah blah blah."
Wouldn’t be #StPatricksDay without corned beef and cabbage! Anyone else eat some today? I also had Irish soda bread for breakfast, that’s my favorite! What’s your favorite Irish tradition? https://t.co/dvcExQkzzN

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".
