JOHNSTOWN - On Sept. 8 as the Northridge High School football team took the field for their game against Fisher Catholic a player carried a Thin Blue Line flag. The flag is a black and white American flag with a single blue line to symbolize solidarity with police officers and honor those who are injured or killed in the line of duty. The topic spurred dozens of posts on social media in the days after the game as students claimed they were no longer allowed to carry the flag.
NEWARK - More than 77,000 Licking County residents were impacted last year through programs funded by the United Way of Licking County. And this year, the United Way wants to go beyond that. At an event kicking off the United Way's fundraising campaign for 2017-18, campaign chair Joan Franks said the United Way is looking to help 90,000 people in the next year. "That's what we're about at United Way," she said.
NEWARK - The state released report cards for school districts Thursday, but some Licking County school district officials don't put much stock in the results. "I've always valued things that you measure. Certainly we'll try to pick things out, but in terms of a big focus? No," Newark City Schools superintendent Doug Ute said. "We don't feel the assessment measures ... what you're doing."
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".
