WEST JORDAN — It had been a long two weeks for Utah Task Force 1, which journeyed to Houston to assist with rescue efforts after Hurricane Harvey. Members of the group, which was assigned to Houston Fire and EMS for rescue operations throughout the city, returned home Wednesday night. It was not only a trying experience for the team members but also for their families. "It's been difficult,” Shauna Lawrence said about not seeing her husband, Steve Lawrence.
PROVO — A community is coping with a tough loss after a local elementary school teacher's sudden death. Christy Yardley was supposed to start teaching sixth grade on Aug. 15, but she died on last Friday following complications from a minor surgery, according to her family. The 40-year-old educator had been a teacher around the world, including in Russia and Taiwan. Yardley had spent the last three years at Rock Canyon Elementary in Provo. Yardley leaves behind a husband and four children.
LAS VEGAS — When someone robbed a Carl’s Jr. in 1994 and shot the manager dead, witnesses couldn't agree on what the killer looked like. Nevertheless, DeMarlo Berry spent 23 years in prison for the murder. Last week, the 42-year-old was exonerated, in large part due to attorneys in Utah who took up his case. “If they weren't as thorough as they were, we wouldn't be here," Berry said Friday. "I'd just be another number in prison."
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".
