All five of Geneseo’s a cappella groups gathered in front of a crowd for the WOW-Capella concert on Saturday Sept. 9 in the MacVittie College Union Plaza. The concert illustrated a cappella at its best with killer harmonies, soloists and beatboxing. During the performance, each musical group showed the audience what styles and types of music they perform to help interested students decide which one of the five groups they should audition for.
“It makes them feel like they are the best,” said Dale Wallace. They are the swim students, all developmentally disabled, of St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center and students that can now use the newly opened junior Olympic sized pool in El Cajon located at 2119 E. Madison. The aquatic center’s ribbon cutting and ceremony was Sept. 9. Wallace’s son, 27-year-old Sheldon, was born with Down syndrome.
The purple and orange backpack, said 6-year-old Leah Smerker, “Has a little pouch to put money in for it Fridays when we have ice cream.” Smerker was just one of the recipients of a backpack give-away, springing from the Caring for America initiative, held at El Cajon’s East County Transitional Living Center on Sept. 5. Smerker, a 2nd-grader at Madison Elementary, was one of the school age youth who received backpacks donated by the San Diego County Federation of Republican Women.
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".
