DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – It’s a concept that takes physical education and turns it into a tool to help special needs students when they are outside the classroom. Durham Public Schools has used this approach for decades. But, one teacher is getting some very special recognition. When CBS North Carolina Little River Elementary, we didn’t see a traditional PE class. There was no basketball, baseball or track and field.
LITTLETON, N.C. (WNCN) — Nina Hines has spent the last 23 years trying to make sure that students at Aurelian Springs Institute of Global Learning are fed in the healthiest way possible. Lately that job has been a lot easier. “We call this Sunday Thursday day,” Hines told CBS North Carolina when we visited the Halifax County School. She was serving exactly what it sounded like. It was a Sunday meal on a Thursday.
RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Making your way to live in the United States can be confusing and stressful. But, educators in central North Carolina are trying to make it much easier. That’s why Shara Wolkomir’s role in the classroom goes far beyond math, science and English. “Not only the English but, customs, cultures, how do we walk in a line, how do we get our lunch, how do you say excuse me. There’s so much more to just trying to enter a country and to understand what to do,” Wolkomir said.
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".
