A failure of Hastings College to share the results of a campus climate survey in a timely manner and a fear or incomplete knowledge of how to report sexual harassment or assault were some of the biggest issues to come to light during a community discussion at the college Wednesday.“There are experiences that have occurred that we should never accept,” HC President Travis Feezell told the audience. “There is no apology for them. There is no dismissal of them.
When Jennifer Lewis took the helm of the YWCA Adams County in 2008, she was a bit out of her element.“I had to learn a whole new thing with nonprofit, how to make it successful and still provide services at low or no cost for people in need. It took a lot of reading and Googling and talking to previous executives,” Lewis said Wednesday.All of that research paid off as Lewis spent nearly 10 years as executive director of the YWCA.
Standing behind his promise, state Sen. Steve Halloran of Hastings introduced a bill addressing free speech on college campuses Wednesday.The bill, LB718, calls for adoption of the Higher Education Free Speech Accountability Act and was dropped into the hopper during the first day of the 60-day session of the Nebraska Legislature.The bill directly relates to a situation that occurred on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus last fall when freshman student Kaitlyn Mullen allegedly was...
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".
