The City of Kettering CitySites Public Art Program has a new initiative called ArtLocal. Using hands-on workshops, dialogues with residents and special events, ArtLocal fosters community participation in the development of permanent artwork in public spaces, such as neighborhood parks. The first community to benefit from this program is the Dayton Mutual Homes subdivision that surrounds Oak Park, located at 2055 Malcolm Drive.
At Kettering Fairmont High School the Hallway Harvest is growing every year, just like the vegetables in the school’s Unity Garden that make up the majority of what’s on the menu. This past Sept. 1 the school held its third annual Hallway Harvest for a select group of school representatives. “The first year, about 10 faculty members came to the event. This year, we had about 25 staff and five school board members. It was the biggest gathering so far,” said senior Theodore Hale.
When Dayton artist Charity Yingling was 12, she turned the family shed into a small gift shop. She had lots of seashells from her family vacations that she and her friends used to create jewelry, wreaths, and other beach-inspired items. She always had that entrepreneurial spirit. Now she and business partner Caleb Thomas have their own art store at Town & Country Shopping Center called C & C Studios. “I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 12 years, and I love their products.
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".
