Originally based on theories by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, personality traits of introversion and extraversion can explain how we perceive the world and make decisions. Being introverted (shy, reticent or withdrawn) can sometimes hold us back from engaging with our community. For some, the thought of volunteering for an organization with strangers in an environment that is unfamiliar might seem out of the question. In general, introverts enjoy spending time by themselves.
As Humboldt State University students roll into town to begin the new school year, the Arcata community is hoping to offer a warm welcome to these young adults who are arriving from places far away. The cultural transition for many can be challenging as they move from their urban upbringing to rural, small-town life. Particularly for students of color, arriving in a town that is over 80 percent white can be a major adjustment.
There is a scientific theory that something as small as the flap of a butterfly’s wing can create a larger event at a later time. Called the Butterfly Effect, this concept, when applied to education, means that if one works with a student and focuses on her or his development, one never knows what result might be achieved. Small, positive changes in a child’s life can create a significantly different outcome in later years.
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".
