Nobody ever chose a teaching career for wealth, glitz, and glamour. But they didn’t sign up for a trip to the poorhouse, either. Virginia must raise pay -- or risk losing dedicated teachers like these. Christian Peabody teaches music at an elementary school in Stafford County, and he really likes both his job and where he gets to do it. He also thinks Stafford County would be a nice place to live.
I grew up with a minimalist Christmas, long before the word became hip with millennials. Not that I lacked a full stocking or what was circled in the Sears Wish Book. Santa’s bag always brimmed. But we scaled back decorations and holiday food traditions.My mother preferred this streamlined style. Mom was an elementary school reading teacher for 25 years. She penciled in holiday gift shopping and meal planning between work and church activities. Decorating was never expensive or time-consuming.
If you look at model Nataša Vojnović’s impressive career as a before-and-after story, the turning point was a late-night call from Karl Lagerfeld in 2000. “He wasn’t satisfied with the images for a look book, so he asked me to come in around midnight for a redo,” says the 38-year-old fashion veteran, who until then had mainly done catalogue gigs. But she was game to keep pace with the notoriously nocturnal designer. “I walked in there on a mission to express myself.
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".
