Addie “Micki” Harris was born in Passaic, New Jersey on January 22, 1940. She attended Passaic High School, where she met Beverly Lee (another Passaic native), Shirley Owens, and Doris Coley. The four girls became best friends, and were inseparable throughout high school. The quartet soon found that they were musically inclined, and formed their own group called The Poquellos, which means “little birds” in Spanish. They began writing their own original songs, and Owens was deemed the lead singer.
Communities across the country are fighting a variety of threats within their environment, with one of the more common hazards being lead contamination in the earth and water. For years, a number of groups have been advocating the risk of lead poisoning, but now some have begun efforts to eradicate it. One of the New Jersey organizations at the forefront of this mission is Isles Inc., in hopes they can safeguard the IQ of local children.
For this solo sensation, you’ll have to travel north of the border. Singer-songwriter Jonathan Vautour hails from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Music sparked a flame in his soul at a young age, and he soon began playing guitar and eventually writing his own songs. By November 2014, Vautour had released his debut album, From the Heart, which features 10 emotive acoustic tracks that were written over a two-year timespan.
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".
