Amy Westgate said she had no time to react. It was Super Bowl Sunday, 2014. Westgate and her boyfriend were driving on South Main Street in Carver, Massachusetts, when a Toyota Scion driven by 24-year-old Chris Reagan crossed into her lane, hitting her car head on. She was five month’s pregnant. Had Westgate's pregnancy been two weeks further along — viable outside the womb — prosecutors say Reagan would have been charged with motor vehicle homicide.
They were thick and they were black. One was crooked. “I’ve got these black caterpillars on my face,” Lynne Young, a Belchertown resident, told NBC10 Boston Investigators. Microblading is a relatively new, delicate technique for an old procedure to either draw missing eyebrows, or fill out thin brows. But confusion and fly-by-night operations abound in Boston, as the city scrambles to stay ahead of a hot trend and to prevent potentially serious injury.
The scene at Route 128/University Park Station can be chaotic. Broken escalators, elevators on the fritz. Commuters late for work and sick of the hassle. "It’s just wrong. It’s just wrong," said Andrew Stockwell. Legally blind, Stockwell takes the MBTA Commuter Rail from Westwood, Massachusetts to his job in Boston, but on this day, both of the station’s inside elevators are out and the escalator going up has been broken for weeks.
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".
