Frustrated neighbors had complained to city officials for nearly a decade about rats, trash, late-night drug use, and rotted debris at a vacant Dorchester triple-decker on Marie Street. Boston regulators issued violations to the absentee owner, who each time promised to repair her building but little or nothing would get done.
Suzanne Miller is an orthopedic surgeon and, let’s face it, she should know better. She knows pain. She knows rehab. Her surgical specialty is knees and shoulders, reconnecting ACLs, patching up rotator cuffs, getting her patients back in the game as soon as possible. So why, in the sweet name of doctor, heal thyself, is she looking forward to someone punching her in the face? “Fantastic question!” said Dr. Miller, 49, strangely effusive over her pending date with pain, Oct. 5 at the House of Blues.
HAVERHILL — While each of his teammates prepared to serve, St. John’s Prep senior Ethan Talkov stood center court, back to the ball, face inches away from the volleyball net as he stared out at his foes on the Haverhill High side. With his arms raised at 45-degree angles, fingertips reaching the tape atop the net, the 6-foot-8 New York University recruit was a menacing figure in the Haverhill High gym Wednesday afternoon.
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".
