The desperate hunt for dozens of missing children at a Mexico City school partially flattened by a powerful earthquake became a race against time as dawn broke Wednesday. At least 217 people were killed by Tuesday's magnitude-7.1 quake and scores of buildings were destroyed. Firefighters, police and local volunteers pulled at least 25 bodies, all but four of them children, from what had been the Enrique Rebsamen school in the south of the capital.
LONDON — An “incident" aboard a subway car in London's Tube network was being investigated by police on Friday and ambulances were on the scene. One photo posted on social media appeared to show a bucket on fire. NBC News could not immediately authenticate the image. Other Twitter posts showed people fleeing from Parson Green Underground station. According to the U.K. government, the current threat from international terrorism is "severe" — the second highest level.
LONDON — Parents and nannies bustling their children to school were enjoying an unseasonably sunny morning in the Parsons Green neighborhood Friday when they were suddenly swamped by helicopters, police cars and ambulances. Just after 8:20 a.m. local time (3:20 a.m ET), the fiery detonation of an improvised device on a subway train brought terrorism to the affluent area. And amid the hysteria and stampede of commuters dashing for safety, some found themselves separated from young loved ones.
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".
