Each week, the Columbia Police Department's K-9 Unit reports for training day at the Central Missouri Events Center, where open fields and simulated apartments await eager four-legged officers ready for a hard day of work.Raf, an 8-year-old German shepherd, is the veteran of the bunch, although you wouldn't know it at first glance. The dog eagerly tugs on the leash as Officer Michael Parsons leads him from the patrol car.
A STRETCH of the A1 has fully reopened to motorists after a mine shaft sink hole opened in the northbound carriageway near Gateshead. Highways England completed urgent repair work to fill the void which measured about 140 cubic metres. Engineers reopened the A1 between Coal House (Junction 67) and Lobley Hill (Junction 68) at around 6am this morning. An old shallow mine shaft underneath the carriageway has been blamed for the road's collapse.
David Arnold came seemingly out of nowhere in 1994 with a massive orchestral score for Roland Emmerich’s STARGATE. Two years later, he repeated the favor for the director’s patriotic pastiche, INDEPENDENCE DAY, and Arnold found himself writing another splendid Save-The-World adventure score. In between the two he composed Tab Murphy’s lost-tribe drama, LAST OF THE DOGMEN.
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".
