The year 2017 will go down in the history books for its bumper crop of naturaldisasters, famine and political turmoil. It might seem like there's not much you can do to help -- but that's not the case. Every day, men and women around the world volunteer their time to make a difference in the world and every year CNN honors them through its CNN Heroes initiative.
(CNN) - "Mis hijos no están dañados", insiste Amy Wright. La mayoría de los padres no tienen que declarar el valor fundamental de sus hijos, pero después de dos de los hijos de la Heroína del Año de CNN de 2017, Amy Wright, nacieron con síndrome de Down, estaba claro que tendría que respaldarlos en cada paso del camino. "Cuando uno se convierte en padre de un niño con necesidades especiales, instantáneamente se ve obligado a convertirse en defensor", explicó Wright.
(CNN) - "My children are not broken," Amy Wright insists. Most parents don't have to declare their children's fundamental value, but after two of her kids were born with Down syndrome, it was clear that she would have to back them up every step of the way. "When you become a parent of a child with special needs, you are instantly thrust into becoming an advocate," explained Wright, the 2017 CNN Hero of the Year. "Trying to make people see the beauty in their lives that we see."
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".
