Dedicated road police and highway patrol numbers have dropped despite a rising road toll. Since 2008 the total number of units on the roads has decreased from 1112 to 975, figures released to Stuff under the Official Information Act show. New Zealand has just experienced its worst year for road fatalities since 2009, with the death toll for the last 12 months sitting at 379.
MIAMI BEACH— In mid-October of last year, Sinclair Broadcast Group moved a critical operation to a fully virtualized public environment, enabling the company to realize a variety of cost and business advantages. What did it do? It streamlined and customized the distribution of the broadcast media company’s children’s programming by centralizing playout operations in the public cloud. Imagine that. That’s exactly what Imagine Communications is saying, as it is responsible for the arrangement.
In late December, a Wichita man named Andrew Finch looked out his front door and saw a SWAT team. He opened the door to see what was going on, and the police shot and killed him. The police thought they were coming to the rescue in a murder-hostage situation, but it was a horrible mistake. There was no emergency. How did this happen? Is “fake news” to blame? Or, is this the result of something else?
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".
