ST. LOUIS (KSDK) — There’s a rather special guy behind the counter at the McDonald’s in Ellisville. “Welcome back, can I help you,” says Jamie Eyrich. “He’s adopted and we didn’t know he was deaf until he was about two months old. Because, I’d go in in the morning and he wouldn’t be looking at me andhe wouldn’t be overjoyed to see me until he turned around and saw me. That’s when I knew,” says Sharon Eyrich. The family moved to St. Louis so that Jamie could attend Central Institute for the Deaf.
"98 was my real competitive," says Jackie. In fact, many of today’s youth don’t even know she was an Olympian. "And he like, is that you?" laughs Jackie. But, she is helping them win a race. The race to success. "Might have not walked in their shoes. But we have walked in similar shoes in trying to be the best that we can be," says Jackie. This is where she works to instill youngsters in East St Louis with drive and determination.
ST. LOUIS - Rich and Greg are the guys behind House of Dad. They met at work and became fast friends talking over lunch. "We were just talking about being dads," said Rich. And then they came up with an idea to make better t-shirts for dads. "Maybe we were trying to be more hip about it. I hate using that word because we're really not hip," said Greg. They did some brainstorming. "Four out of three dads hate math," said Greg. And they realized their daily lives were full of captions.
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".
