Several weeks each year we take our vacation and go to the beach. We always feel our house and possessions are safe because we have a wonderful pet sitter who cares for them when we are away. William takes care of our three dogs and two cats so they don’t have to leave their normal surroundings.William’s mother told me the following story after we came home from our vacation in July.
Editor’s note: The following was written a few years ago. They were educated at the candidate school in Chattanooga, Tenn. They learned what would be expected of them and how to go to people’s homes and teach them about the Lord. During their years in the mission field they lived in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina. They stayed in Pennsylvania longer than anywhere else. The Painters started four Baptist churches while living in Pennsylvania.
During a recent visit with Revonda Willis and her husband she told me a story about when she was 5 years old. Her dad came home from work one day close to Christmas and told their family about one of the pulpwood haulers who worked where he did. The man’s wife had been in the hospital, and he was depressed because he had no money for presents for the children. That evening at the dinner table Mr. Willis told his family about this.
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".
