What started as nearly daily walks along the Linear Park Trail near her home, Gillian Mandel has turned into a community project to improve the area. For her Gold Award project as part of the Girl Scouts, the Carson High School junior has made plans to improve the park and to clean it up. After securing a bench to be installed along the path, as well as raptor poles, Mandel is organizing a cleanup Sept. 30. "The whole point of the event is to improve the park," she said.
Document your stroll by taking pictures and using the hashtags #getOTL #CCStoryStroll #IWalkForMyLibrary on social media. "I like reading the Percy Jackson series. I like history — it's about Greek gods, and it's pretty interesting," she said. "I also like the biography series, 'Who Was?' books. They're about people who made a change in the world. They're fun to read." Eleanor's sister, Sydney, 12, would rather be outside. "I love the lake," she said.
In case the tornado warning, hailstorm and dropping temperatures this week weren't already reminder enough that summer is coming to an end, the deadline for Nevada Day entries is upon us — proving that fall is all but officially here. Ken Hamilton, executive director of Nevada Day, Inc., said the deadline to avoid late fees has been extended over the weekend to 5 p.m. Monday. "We got a new system and we've had some issues, so we're waiving the late fees until Monday," he said.
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".
