Tim Tebow is treating 90,000 special needs kids to an unforgettable prom night experience with his annual Night to Shine. Volunteers with the Tim Tebow Foundation work with 540 churches across the globe to provide a prom night complete with limousines, music and Christian values. This year’s event is scheduled for Feb. 9. “To think that 90,000 people with special needs will be cheered for, celebrated and loved on one night around the world is just amazing,” Tebow, 30, said in a release.
When her grandmother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer just a few weeks before Christmas this year, Madeline “Maddie” Smith knew exactly what she needed to do. Anticipating that her grandmother, Frances Jones, who lost her husband to heart failure four years prior, would need a lot of support to get through treatment, Smith came up with a brilliant way to make sure she felt like he was by her side along the way.
It’s cold out there, and Dr. Ernie Ward is back, this time with an eye-opening experiment showing how dangerous it can be to leave your dog outside when temperatures plummet. The North Carolina veterinarian first made his way into our news feeds with a viral video demonstrating the harmful effects of leaving your canine companion in a hot car. Now that the weather has shifted to the opposite extreme, Ward is just as committed to making sure pet owners understand how to keep their pets safe.
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".
