ST. LOUIS - It was the most overgrown backyard you might ever see: weeds up to 10-feet high in south St. Louis. Those weeds were gone Friday morning after a Fox2/News11 report on Thursday. “I got up at 7:30 (a.m.) and looked at it to see what was going on and they were practically done,” neighbor Joyce Rheinhardt said. The St. Louis City Forestry Department showed up bright and early to take down the massive weeds.
ST. LOUIS – It’s an eyesore like you've never seen: backyard weeds so tall you can barely see a south St. Louis house. Residents have been trying to get something done for nearly two months with no luck. It’s like a walk through a forest behind 3235 Liberty Street. It’s a well-kept block of single and two-family homes. You can barely see the building from the alley behind 3235 Liberty. “It looks like a jungle,” said neighbor Percy Ruffin.
EAST ST. LOUIS, IL – Workers stumbled on what they considered on a life-and-death heat emergency in East St. Louis: a woman trying to survive in the worst of conditions. They're now on a mission to do something about it. He and his crew met a woman trying to keep cool at a McDonald’s. She told them her home needed repairs and a cleanup. They’re now worried, she may not live through the heat wave. When Williams and his crew saw the house on 24th Street, they couldn’t just drive by.
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".
