A tearful reunion posted on Facebook may have cost seven Massachusetts police officers their deployment to Puerto Rico. The officers - from Chelsea, Easthampton, Hampden and Holyoke - had been helping with security on the hurricane-ravaged island for less than a week. They said they asked permission from Puerto Rican police to check in on the family of a Holyoke officer in southern Puerto Rico and help anyone else they found along the way.
Less than 20-percent of the Puerto Rico has power following the devastation from Hurricane Maria, but the governor is hoping that reaches 30-percent by the end of the month and 95-percent in December. But there are questions after a group of Massachusetts officers were sent home early from their mission because of a side-trip to check on an officer’s family. The men say they had permission but still got sent home. Now they’re looking for answers.Published 1 minute ago
Captain Bob Rufo, of the Woburn Police Department, lays out multiple rifles for a weapon demonstration in the basement firing range. "This is a 30-round magazine," Rufo says, loading a clip. "I'll fire five rounds, semi-automatic." And he fires. Pop...pop...pop...With a semi-automatic weapon, a round gets fired every time you press the trigger. Even pulling the trigger as fast as you can, the rate of fire is limited.
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".
