You might say E.K. McClain Jr., 95, has lived a charmed life. The Waco resident is surrounded by a loving family: two boys and an adopted girl; six grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. He started a business after serving in World War II and Korea that still thrives in Waco today.
Despite being 93 years old, Lorena resident Rayford Glaze can still recite his Army serial number, with prompting. He also remembers all too well what war was like from a front-row seat: Glaze was a rifleman with the Army during World War II.Glaze was born in Coryell County in June 1924 and grew up during the Great Depression. “It was rough. People didn’t have any money,” he said. But the family raised chickens and hogs and canned preserves, so they had plenty to eat.
For some people, joining the service is a calling. For others, it’s more a passageway to maturity, providing necessary discipline and direction for young people on the brink of adulthood. China Spring resident David G. Stovall, now 66, would most likely fall in the latter category. The military provided intangible skills he didn’t know he was missing.Stovall was born in Waco, but raised in Austin. He was 10 when his father passed away from kidney disease.
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".
