A shelter from the cold is more than a warm bed or a hot meal. Sometimes warmth means more to a person than the heat itself. Just ask Kenneth Bernoska, who has become a regular guest of the warming room at St. Benedict the Moor Parish in Milwaukee. “(St. Ben’s) provides warmth and stability,” he said. “I haven’t found that other places.”Bernkosa is one of dozens of homeless men, women and children who have been seeking more than just shelter under the caring watch of the volunteers at St. Benedicts.
When Michael Diaz was born premature at 25 weeks, the world didn’t know quite what he had in store. The now-14-year-old freshman at Muskego High School spent 115 days in the hospital after he was born. For almost 100 of those days, he was on a respirator. Diaz had numerous surgeries, including several high-risk operations on his eyes. As of today, he is 20/400 in his right eye and does not have vision in his left eye. He does most things with braille and uses a white cane for mobility.
It is not through words, but rather through action that disciples of Christ make their mark on this world. That is among a host of poignant reasons why St. Mary’s of Hales Corners sixth-grade teacher Wendy Hornik chose to build a special project based on R. J. Palacio’s “Wonder.”The New York Times bestseller recently made its way to the big screen, telling the inspiring story of fifth-grader August Pullman, who has face abnormalities.
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".
