In Florida and Texas one area of need for those hit by hurricanes Irma and Harvey are school athletic programs. Now there's a new effort to put schools in those impacted areas directly in touch with other schools across the country who can help, including schools in South Carolina. The South Carolina High School League sent out an email that had information about how to help Florida and Texas high school athletic programs impacted by the recent hurricanes.
Hurricane Maria is the worst hurricane to hit Puerto Rico in over 80 years, and it has those in the Upstate who are from the US territory extremely worried about their loved ones. One of those people is Millie Eskew. She’s from Puerto Rico, but now lives in the Upstate. She has heard from her immediate family and knows they are ok but she hasn’t heard from her extended family. She says it is incredibly hard to see the pictures coming out of Puerto Rico, and asks for people’s prayers.
It's a new kind of project for an Upstate woodworker, and his latest creation will help kids with cancer, get a taste of freedom, while receiving treatment in the hospital. It started when the Williams family approached Andy Ballew and asked the woodworker if he'd use his time and talents to help make a unique kind of seat, one that sits on an IV pole base, so that kids cooped up in the hospital and being treated for cancer can have a little taste of freedom.
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".
