BOSTON (CBS) – Officials in the devastated city of Houston say they’ve received from 60,000-70,000 calls for help in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Emergency relief is pouring from all over, including from New England. Among those on their way to Texas to lend a hand are Salvation Army disaster chaplains Maj. Bessie Babbitt and Maj. Mayra Vasquez. The pair left Logan Airport Wednesday for what is expected to be a two-week assignment.
There also are many online recycling networks, such as Freecycle and Recycle Where , that provide direction on donating your sink and other unneeded kitchen items. These networks are free to use and are solid communities that work to keep items out of landfills and encourage communal trade of items that otherwise would just be discarded.If your sink is porcelain, know that it has many potential uses as a recyclable material.
GLOUCESTER (CBS) – Six-year-old Mason Adams is a kid of few words. He may not be old enough to understand the true impact he has made, but he is already teaching others about giving back. Mason had his sixth birthday in March and decided he did not want a single present. Instead, he wanted all of his birthday money to be donated to the Gloucester Police Department.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
