Andrew Greene discovered ragtime music at age 11. The Broadneck resident had studied classical piano since age 4, and was a bit tired of Chopin. As a treat, his teacher introduced him to Scott Joplin's classic, "The Maple Leaf Rag." His teacher at the time probably wouldn't have predicted Greene would one day lead what the Washington Post hails as, "The premiere American Ragtime ensemble," who perform nationally, "recreating the syncopated stylings from over 100 years ago."
Perseverance was the character trait of the month at Belvedere Elementary School in Arnold. And the opening of the new outdoor classroom, originally envisioned six years ago by . Sonia Muhitch, pre-K teacher and leader of the school's "green team," is a "life lesson in that trait." Muhitch wanted the students to have an outdoor classroom; a space where they could learn, perform, eat, and relax outside.
What are you cooking for dinner tonight? If you are eleven-year old Caitlyn White from Arnold, you might be whipping up some rosemary lemon chicken and zucchini noodles. Caitlyn's cooking ability led to her recent appearance, and victory on Food Network's "Chopped Junior." The diminutive chef came home with a $10,000 prize, as the last chef standing on the recently broadcast episode, entitled "Rescue Mission."
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".
