The timing couldn’t be more perfect. Just in time for Food Day, which comes every year on Oct. 24, the farm-to-school Harvest of the Month program has returned to Tehama County elementary schools. Through HOTM, each month school children are formally introduced to one fruit or vegetable that’s fresh and in season, which means easily found at local farmers’ markets, produce stands, and grocery stores.
Just in time for the new school year: new insights into how Education Secretary Betsy DeVos plans to tackle higher education issues in America. Since her controversial confirmation in February (which required a tie-breaking vote from Vice President Mike Pence), the divisive DeVos has shied away from speaking with media. She sat down Aug. 9 with the Associated Press to discuss a wide range of topics, from for-profit schools and affirmative action, to sexual assault on campus and HBCUs.
Where do your flowers come from, beyond the brick-and-mortar storefront you frequent for vibrant blooms? This is the question that Debra Prinzing, Seattle-based garden journalist, author, and founder of Slow Flowers recently planted in my head. Prinzing– an avid gardener herself– has memories of flowers that date back to her maternal grandfather growing Dalia’s when she was three.
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".
