- Tim Besecker felt fine and even had a smile on his face on Tuesday. But he sure wasn't smiling Monday when he slid the length of his driveway after stepping on a sheet of ice outside of his Loudoun County home - a 10-second trip that's made him internet famous! About 20 million people have watched the video of his slide after his wife posted it on Facebook. "I was just looking for the grass," he told FOX 5's Bob Barnard who spoke to him Wednesday morning.
- Wade Spann went to the other side of the world to fight for his country in the Iraq War. But last year, the 34-year-old Marine veteran took a journey of a different kind: towards healing. Spann is part of a new generation of veterans-- one of many young men and women in their 20s and 30s who are living with the scars of war, while trying to fit back into the world at home after serving in the military. Last year, Spann hit the road. He went cross-country on a journey to healing.
Brutal morning on the Red Line. Rider says it took 90 mins to get from Bethesda to Farragut North. Packed trains stopping at stations for extended periods! @wmata & @NTSB investigating first derailment of new 7000 series rail cars. @fox5dchttps://t.co/rfTyJHttOC
It’s been that kind of morning on @wmata Red Line as track repairs wrap up near Metro Center after Monday’s derailment. They’re hoping to run test trains soon and end single tracking in time for the afternoon/evening commute. https://t.co/tMBNdMxj8H
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".
