It takes a pretty special child to smile through some of the most trying times of their life. We meet a young man who's done that. His name is G-Quantavius, but he keeps things simple and prefers you call him "GQ." With a smile, this quiet boy opened up recently about losing a parent and keeping his faith in God. Eleven-year-old G.Q. has a warmth that radiates a room. When our WFAA crew met GQ at Sea Life Grapevine, he greeted everyone with a big smile and gave WFAA's Cynthia Izaguirre a hug.
Today's Wednesday's Child is a smart, funny and charming young man who is running out of time. Jason starts high school later this month, but he's also getting older. He's 15 years old and faces aging out of the system in just 3 years at the age of 18. Lucky for Jason, he's got a team of people working for him. Jason likes to make people laugh, particularly his team of advocates who brought him to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science for some fun learning.
Dylan is only 8 years old and already knows he wants to serve his country. Today's Wednesday's Child is very bright and wants to be protected the way he hopes to one day protect this nation. It was an exciting day for 8-year-old Dylan. “I want to be one of the soldiers," he said excitingly. Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) students at Arlington's Timberview High School showed Dylan how to march and properly hold a rifle.
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".
