BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- Every parent wants their kids to "fit in" at school, not be bullied, and focus on learning, but that can be tough if money is tight. 7Everyday Hero Sue Fernau is working to change that. "There is such a satisfaction with seeing that smile on the child's face. Or the excitement in them once they get those new clothes," Fernau said. Fernau volunteers at A Precious Child. It is a non-profit that provides clothing and essentials that help hundreds of families.
You do not need research to tell you that hunger can hinder a child's ability to learn. And yet there are thousands of kids right here in Colorado who go hungry. That is why 7Everyday Hero Mike Lewis volunteers at Food for Hope. "Because there are a lot of kids who go hungry in Adams County. So, our function is to provide them food for the weekend for both them and their families," Lewis said.
DENVER -- There are 69,000 Coloradans living with Alzheimer's disease and for caregivers, trying to help a loved one can be a scary and lonely road. But 7Everyday Hero Linda Rankin is changing that. "I feel so blessed to be part of this group," Rankin said. Rankin is a co-facilitator for an Alzheimer's Association Colorado Chapter caregiver's support group. "It's like extended family of people who are all having similar experiences with a loved one who has dementia," Rankin 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".
