Coretta Albright and Eva Cook have been named this year's winners of the Frank and Mae Rush Award. The award was created by the Association of the Friends of the Wichitas to recognize outstanding contributions to the stated purposes of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge and the National Wildlife Refuge System. Albright said she never imagined she might one day receive this honor. Though she now manages the Nature Store inside the Refuge Visitor Center, she once wore the uniform of the U.S.
Hunters who took part in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge's two controlled elk hunts had a high success rate. Wildlife biologist Dan McDonald, who coordinated both hunts, said that of 100 permits available for the hunt that took place Dec. 12-14, 97 were issued. Three of those whose names were drawn chose not to pay the $50 fee to participate. Of the 94 who did pay, 91 showed up for the actual hunt. The "no shows" accounted for two bull permits and four cow permits.
The Fires Center of Excellence and the Marine Corps Artillery Detachment recognized their 2017 Instructors and Curriculum Developers of the Year at a ceremony Thursday. "This year's recipients displayed an exemplary talent and skill through their instruction and the curriculum they developed for a variety of students from all services and allied nations," Fort Sill narrator Michael Simmons said.
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".
