Amid the trinkets, gadgets, and tools available at The Children's Museum of the Brazos Valley, is a brand new kid-friendly replica of an Air Med helicopter used by the CHI St Joseph trauma unit. CHI St Joseph and the Children's Museum partnered on the project for almost a year. Their aim is to not only give kids a glimpse at the life of a pilot or Air Med nurse, but to possibly inspire them to one day pursue a career in the health field.
Well, it had to happen at some point. On days like today, where I'm stuck in an office with no window, I like to have our LiveEye network routed to one of our giant television screens, so I can prop my feet up and pretend I'm looking out my window. I wasn't kidding. It will be a glorious March afternoon, and you should get out and enjoy it, if you can! It's not all bad to end the week, but we will be looking at some changes.
A quick step out the front door will hit you with spring in all the senses: green sprouting amid the brown and weeds from a cold winter, mayflies clinging to your door and hovering over your lawn, aroma of fresh cut grass (if you're able to smell through the seasonal allergy flare up), birds chattering at all hours of the day.. and, of course, that wonderful, thick, muggy gulf air. That humidity we know and love is a key ingredient to kicking off severe weather season.
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".
