Every student at Chico State has to check Wildcat mail daily, or at least weekly for those who sometimes forget they have one, in order to get notifications for class, student announcements and announcements from teachers and scholarships. Chico State uses Google for the campus email accounts and uses the admired Google algorithm in order to filter out spam and scams that most college students get on a daily basis.
Last week the Orion met up with a group that would be interviewing the homeless for a class project. After a week of the team going out and collecting stories, we asked them to tell us about the experience. Sabrina Lee, a second-year kinesiology student, was a leading student in this project and represented the group in an interview with us. The O: Going into this project how did you expect the homeless to react to you approaching them?
At the turn of the century came Creed. This group of knuckleheads, led by the one and only Scott Stapp, is sure to keep any dad crooning into the night. Human Clay is full of quintessential dad gems best sang at karaoke bars. There was nothing quite like climbing into the minivan after a long day of soccer practice as “welcome to the Hotel California” blared through the speakers. Vocalist Glenn Frey never ceases to make one feel like driving down Route 66 at 2 a.m. while wearing a leather jacket.
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".
