I’m another step closer to the end of my college career. It is with bittersweet joy that I begin to write this article. It is the first week of my final semester at Florida State University and I could not be more excited, more proud, or more misty-eyed. I knew Florida State was my home from the time I was a kid. I was in love with the garnet and gold long before I watched my first football game.
When Fred Rogers, host of the famous television show Mister Roger’s Neighborhood would see upsetting, horrible things in the news, his mother would tell him, “look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”2017 had well over its fair share of dark moments, but this article serves as a chance to set the darkness aside and look toward the light, toward acts of love and compassion. Here are 7 heartwarming, wholesome moments and actions from 2017.
When is the last time we noticed something truly original in theaters? Was it 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'? No, that’s the continuation of the Star Wars franchise from the 1970s. Was it 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle'? No, that’s a reboot of the popular adventure flick starring the late great Robin Williams. What about 'Wonder'? That has to be an original story, right? Wrong. It’s based off of a best-selling children’s novel by R.J. Palacio.
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".
