Community services in Rwanda and folks walking local trails come together at 9 a.m. Sept. 16 in a fundraiser hosted by Peace Lutheran Church in Grass Valley. Participants will walk local trails that day â€” and they'll be asking friends and neighbors to sponsor them. Organizers hope to raise $1,000 to support grass-roots efforts in Rwandan villages that improve the lives of ordinary people, said Jim Line, chairman of Peace's Rwanda Connection Committee.
Local people donated close to $8,000 at a recent concert to support relief and rebuilding in the Houston area, devastated by Hurricane Harvey. The impromptu Texas Hurricane Fundraising Concert drew at least 170 people to hear 31 musicians perform at Peace Lutheran Church in Grass Valley on Sunday. The entire amount raised — so far, $7,676, with more donations expected — will be sent to Lutheran Disaster Response, said the Rev. Eileen Smith Le Van, pastor of Peace.
Bees, butterflies, bats and barn owls visit this summer to teach children to care for creation. They arrive during Earthcare Day Camp, July 17-20 in downtown Grass Valley. Through storytelling, science, crafts and even recreation, children will learn that the very air we breathe forms a part of the web of life. It sustains us all on this planet — and we humans have a special role in protecting that web.
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".
