SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - The holiday shopping season is fast approaching and that means porch pirates will be on the prowl looking for packages to swipe. One San Diego man has already fallen victim, but he fought back by setting out phony packages as bait and catching the crooks on camera. Lance McDonald in Morena said the hammock and battery charger he ordered for $35 on Amazon were stolen. “It was not a monetary thing. It was more of an invasion of privacy,” he said.
SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) – On Friday, a fourth woman came forward with disturbing allegations of sexual assault by a San Diego County Sheriff’s Deputy. The woman said Deputy Richard Fischer groped her while she was cuffed in a patrol car and even looked through her cellphone without permission. Her story is similar to what an East County woman shared with News 8 earlier this week. All of the allegations have taken place in the last two years, according to the women’s attorneys.
SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) – Fifty years of music was celebrated in a big way Thursday night at the Sweetwater Union High School District’s annual Band Pageant. More than 2,300 students marched on the field, but it was not a competition, but rather an exhibition to showcase the 12 high school marching bands. “[We] show off our band and capabilities. We made championship this year, wahoo,” said Justin Pacheco, Chula Vista High School sophomore who plays the drums.
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".
