For nearly 20 years, Cathy Harris has volunteered with women incarcerated at the Topeka Correctional Facility, where she works to mentor them through Bible studies and drama. During that time, she said Friday, she and others have been able to teach, instruct, laugh and cry with the women. She hopes that their presence demonstrates love and hope for a better future for each one.
Mary Holloway enjoys being outside in her front yard, working in her flower garden. But, she admits, sitting outside at a turquoise-colored table for a couple of hours at a time while busy traffic travels past her is a bit outside her comfort zone. “It’s not what I thought I’d be doing,” Holloway said Wednesday at the table outside her house at 1917 S.W. 33rd St., just around the corner from Countryside United Methodist Church, which she attends.
Grinter Farms’ 40 acres of sunflowers are in bloom, and the thousands of people planning to hit the road on Labor Day weekend for photographs should know a few things first. Ted and Kris Grinter open their field, located at 24154 Stillwell Road between Lawrence and Tonganoxie, to the public each year while the sunflowers are in bloom. Peak bloom typically lasts up to two weeks. Still, the property is a working farm, and the couple asks that visitors be respectful.
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".
