RICHMOND, Va. — Shavonne Brown has a passion for fashion, and community. Though the road has been tough, the 27-year-old mother is accomplishing her dream, and giving to others along the way. â€œI always wanted to do it,â€? Brown said. â€œI always wanted to be in the fashion industry, but I never had that push.â€? It was a heartbreaking experience in 2016 that set her on her path. Last October Brown and her children were visiting family in Mosby Court.
RICHMOND, Va. â€“ Violence isnâ€™t uncommon for residents of Richmondâ€™s Gilpin Court, though the other day it spilled into the lobby of the cityâ€™s housing management. A man shot in the thigh stumbled into the Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority office and slumped over. It was a change of pace for Ingram Brown, the woman who helps oversee the organization that provides public housing to roughly 10,000 lower income Richmond residents.
RICHMOND, Va. â€“ Barbara Morris already liked to keep quiet and out of sight in her neighborhood, which she considers dangerous. But now Morris is lying low in her Creighton Court apartment for another reason. “I broke the ankle in my leg in three places and I canâ€™t climb up and down the steps,” Morris said. She fell three weeks ago, on her way out of the doctorâ€™s office. Since then, sheâ€™s been getting around with a cane.
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".
