WE deposited another son at university at the weekend. I should be getting used to this by now. It’s the fourth time we have had to load our car up with everything an 18-year-old boy might need for living away from home. “Can you think of anything we’ve forgotten?” I said, peering into the stuffed-full car. He promptly rushed to the kitchen to grab an essential: “Corkscrew and bottle opener,” he grinned.
The meeting was held in the Ector Middle School cafeteria. The parent meetings were not required, but were something Ector County Independent School District board members wanted to do. Only a handful of parents turned out at Ector. Another meeting was held at Zavala Monday night and another is planned for 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Noel Elementary School cafeteria at 2200 Newcomb Drive. Superintendent Tom Crowe said the board members were there to help, not to condemn or judge.
Getting on Jeopardy! is a long process. A test is administered once a year. In college at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, she and her roommate would watch the show and take the test in the computer lab. “I took the test online and I’ve taken the test every chance I could since I was about 18. I used to do the college test. Now I do the regular (one),” Roth said. A little over a year ago in July, she got an email asking her if she wanted to audition in Oklahoma City.
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".
