It's the first day of kindergarten for 5-year-olds, and you see that familiar teary-eyed look, not from the children heading to school, but their parents. Dr. Kara Scholl, Principal at South Shades Crest Elementary, knows the look well. That feeling in the pit of your stomach that sends a message to the tear ducts of your eyes that says it's too soon. Many of us went through the same kind of thing dropping the children off at preschool, but somehow this is different.
There is so much more to music than just the vocals and instruments, and this summer students got a chance to learn from a master. Dr. Henry Panion's Woodlawn summer music tech camp is wrapping up its fourth session this year. Sixteen-year-old Isaac Barbee is so proud to show up the music he created. "This is a beat that I made a couple of days ago." Isaac is just one of the students grades 4 through 12 taking part in the Woodlawn summer music tech camp.
About a dozen members of Walker High School's class reunion got a first look inside the new Jasper High School. From all the ooh's and ahh's, you'd hardly think there was ever any hard feelings, but for months so many Walker High alums pleaded with the Jasper City school system to keep Walker as the name. Janice Collins is in the group, class of 67, 68, and 69 taking the walk through the beautifully tiled hallways of Jasper High. "This place is beautiful. I am so proud of it.
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".
