After 28 years as a baseball coach — the last 18 leading the University of Dayton’s team — Tony Vittorio’s taken on a new position with Friends of Jaclyn (FOJ), a nonprofit foundation serving children with pediatric cancers. The 51-year-old Kettering resident feels so passionately about both “careers” that he says, “I feel like I’ve never worked a day in my life.”Eight years into his role as head baseball coach for UD, Vittorio saw an HBO documentary on the Jaclyn Murphy story.
When 75-year-old George Herzog was a teen in Virginia, he entered the General Motors’ Fisher Body Craftsman’s Guild contest for design and crafting model cars. He, like other entrants, have kept some of their models, formed an alumni group, and they will have their designs and models on display at this weekend’s annual Concours d’Elegance car event in Dayton. “At first, the contest was strictly for craftsmanship, and we were sent a kit,” said the Beavercreek resident.
When Chris Busser joined the Dayton Marine Reservists right out of Enon High School, he didn’t realize he’d be deployed, or what his experiences would be. But, after three tours and retirement with permanent disabilities, he began writing a memoir to counteract his nightmares. “No Tougher Duty, No Greater Honor: A Memoir of a Mortuary Affairs Marine” was launched at the Kettering VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) Post on Aug. 11.
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".
