Tracking "CRRC" on the Web | Google Alerts

In the spirit of being data-driven, we try to track when and how people refer to our work on the Internet. The simplest tool for this is Google Alerts, from which we receive the weekly update on some of the main terms that are associated with our work.

One term that has NOT proven useful in this is “CRRC”. As it turns out, a number of organizations use this acronym. There is, for example, the Conflict Records Research Center at the National Defense University, which itself is the center for professional military education in the United States. That CRRC says that its “mission is to facilitate the use of captured records to support research, both within and outside the government.”

Next to keeping Saddam Hussein’s records, CRRC also serves more basic tasks, such as keeping your roof from getting too hot.

This CRRC says that it “maintains a third-party rating system for radiative properties of roof surfacing materials.” It’s based in California, and has been rating roofs since 1998. We would like to think that this CRRC also is about numbers. Similarly in California is a CRRC that at first sounds as if it’s dedicated to recycling. Actually, it’s an association of companies in the waste industry, and, as such associations do, both serves their members with services, and lobbies on their behalf. Started in 1958, it’s been around for a while.

And then there’s another American association. Austere in its Internet design and logo, it also holds the address. Since they had that .org domain, we had to get a much longer Web address way back when. Based in New Jersey, the Citizen’s Rifle and Revolver Club is the oldest CRRC we could identify, and was started in 1938.

Between centers, councils, clubs and industry associations, we also found a more cuddly version of CRRC, this one in the United Kingdom.

If you are a lost rabbit, that is where you most likely would want to find yourself. As the website says:

“Our long term Rabbit residents enjoy the freedom of quiet, purpose built, predator proof enclosures to roam as they wish. […] They have the chance to wash each other, and play, and spend a lot of time in rows next to each other just watching the world go by.”

That doesn’t sound like what we do everyday, but it’s a nice group to share the search term “CRRC” with.
