When new high school principal Shawnda Zahara-Harris looks out over the South Elementary School campus, she sees a far brighter future for career and technical education than a building sandwiched next to the bus barn can offer. The conversion of South, a kindergarten-only building, into a high school supplement and construction of a new elementary school on Laurel's east end are the defining projects of the bond proposal, for which mail ballots are due Nov. 7.
It was a pretty normal jump for Dana Bowman on Feb. 6, 1994. He'd practiced it more than 50 times as a member of the Golden Knights, the U.S. Army's elite parachute team. But something went horribly wrong: Bowman and a teammate collided in midair. His teammate was killed, and Bowman lost both legs. On Friday, Bowman implored Billings middle school students to live their lives with the same tenacity that got him jumping back out of planes less than a year after the accident.
When Karen Moses was helping to plan the first Saturday Live about 25 years ago, she expected about 1,000 people to show up at Pioneer Park. No, said Mitch Dimich, think 10,000 — and he started backing up his estimate with supplies for a major crowd. It turns out that Dimich, a third-generation family leader at Pepsi Cola Bottling Company of Billings, underestimated the crowd.
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".
