BRYAN, Texas—It started with just a few. When that little project began to snowball into the thousands, Vigil had to get some help from others. Because her mission is all about spreading joy to kids stuck in the hospital over the holiday. “Not a lot of people think about the children in the hospital during the holiday season,” said Vigil. Vigil knows first-hand what it’s like to be missing out on all the Christmas activities. “I was born with a cleft lip and palate.
BRYAN, Texas—Christmas wishes will soon come true for thousands of children in Brazos County. The Salvation Army will be handing out donated gifts on Thursday to over 800 families in the area. People across the Brazos Valley donated gifts to the Salvation Army through their annual Angel Tree program. The community has donated thousands of bikes, toys, and clothing items for the children all under 12 years old. The Salvation Army said this means so much to the families who are receiving these gifts.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas—Some say laughter is the best medicine. The Senior Circle at the College Station Medical Center gathers once a month to get a dose of joy and happiness. You won’t find any downward dogs or tree poses here. But what you will find is a lot of singing, hugging, and of course, laughing. Angelika Hoepfl started the Brazos Valley Laughter Yoga circle around five years ago at the College Station Medical Center.
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".
