(Pregnancy Help News) When Jessica Ricke walked into Women’s Choice Center in 2005, it was with the intention of ending the life of her unborn child through abortion. Now, a dozen years later, Ricke is the center’s director of development, playing a key role in raising $1.2 million since October of 2015—the bulk of which has gone to the purchase of a mobile medical unit. Safe to say, Ricke’s life today is a stark contrast to life as a single 21-year-old facing an unplanned pregnancy.
Columbia trail uses app to bring technology to natureCOLUMBIA - The Audubon Society of Missouri (ASM) combined nature and technology with a new interactive bird sighting app. ASM thought the app could help it better identify what birds live in the grassland trail. Hikers scan a QR code on the trail head of the grassland trail in Rock Bridge Memorial State Park. After hikers scan the code, a list of birds pop up on the smart phone. Hikers record what they see and submit it to the e-bird data base.
COLUMBIA - An MU fraternity is rallying around a brother in need after his house burned down last week. Alpha Gamma Sigma member Tristan Green was finishing up his first semester of college when he received a life-altering call from an old teacher from his hometown.
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".
