In a way, it started with the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. As news of the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United Airlines Flight 93 spread across the nation, the three young sons of Jeff and Pamela Christensen were paying attention. And what they saw planted a seed, the first stirrings of a commitment to defending the country. Today, all three are in the U.S. Air Force.
Please pardon Octavius Feaster if you think he's ignoring you. He might be writing a song in his head. Battle Creek's rising hip-hop star doesn't wait for the right moment to write lyrics. He'll just pick up his cell phone and type, sometimes even at work. "I really enjoy music," Feaster said. "I enjoy the expression in music, I enjoy the emotion around music and how it can change your mood in an instant." Feaster, 26, lives with his younger brother in an apartment in Springfield.
The Pennfield Schools Board of Education officially joined a unified push by local school districts to support students of diverse backgrounds Monday, but without the backing of Board President Jack Wollaston. Wollaston cast the only vote against a resolution supporting educational equity, becoming the only school board member in the Battle Creek area to vote against the resolution.
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".
