BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It may be cold right now, but NASA researchers say 2017 was the second warmest year on record. “We’re seeing temperature change play out with areas that are warmer and cooler, but on average our planet’s been heating up consistently since the 1850’s,” said Dr. Doug Morton of NASA’s Goddard Spaceflight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Five of the warmest years on record have happened since 2010, with 2016 clocking in as the hottest year ever.
BALTIMORE (WJZ)– A man is suing the Baltimore Police Department for what he claims was brutality, and the incident was captured on video. In May of 2015, following a peaceful protest that had just finished, Larry Lomax approached police officers alone and was hit with a massive dose of pepper spray and arrested. “The question is the reasonableness of the force, and here the force was clearly unreasonable, and you can look at the video for yourself,” said Lomax’s lawyer Jackson Downs.
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Following a false alarm that warned of a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii this past weekend, officials have pledged that the blunder will never happen again. The panic came within seconds of a cellphone alert Saturday morning throughout the islands. The alert stated: “A MISSILE IMPACT ON LAND OR SEA WITHIN MINUTES. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”The unthinkable became all too real for nearly 40 minutes.
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".
