GARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio -- Seven-year-old Mary Anton doesn't want anyone to see her first report card of the school year. "No," the second grader cries out as a visitor peeks at her report card which shows she is "meeting expectations" in most subjects, but "needs to improve" when it comes to "demonstrates self-control" and "respects rights, feelings and property of others." Mary flips the report card face down on the wooden kitchen table so the grades can't be seen.
GARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio -- Mary Anton never meets a stranger that she doesn't like. And that's not good when you are just 7 years old and living in a neighborhood with sex offenders. She has a smile and a bright cheery "Hi," for nearly every adult. And the aspiring veterinarian really likes dogs so she chats with the dog walkers and offers gentle strokes for Fidos. Her frustrated mother, Denise, admonishes her time and again about speaking to strangers.
GARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio - The father of 12-year-old Tristan Anton owes $26,000 in child support, a game-changing sum for Tristan's mother, Denise, who struggles to support her family as a customer-service representative. He is supposed to pay $245 a month, while the father of Denise's 7-year-old daughter, Mary, is supposed to pay $289 a month. Both men are behind on payments. Most months, Denise is lucky to get $2 a month from either one of the men. The dilemma is one faced by many single parents.
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".
