This year commemorates the 250th anniversary of John Dickinson’s “Letters from a Farmer in Pennsylvania.” The series of essays were in favor of individual and colonial rights and were written to help the average person understand their rights as a citizen. It’s a part of Delaware history that people get to experience during a visit to the John Dickinson Plantation in Dover.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., The Chemours Company and the United Way of Delaware joined Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki’s staff to organize care packages for the homeless. Volunteers at the Police Athletic League created an assembly line to pack personal care items in bags. The kits included a variety of toiletries, snacks, bottled water, socks, and blankets. There were also personalized kits packed with toys for children.
A Wilmington organization remains committed to helping young people, especially when it comes to helping young boys become the next generation of leaders. The Martin Luther King holiday marked the end of a week of action strategically called, “Raising Kings”. It was organized by the One Village Alliance in honor of Dr. King’s legacy. Community members organized a series of events at Delaware Art Museum to encourage inner city youth, including things like teaching children how to put on ties.
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".
