July 21 (UPI) -- A driver who stopped to take video of a black bear beside an Alberta road captured the moment the large animal charged at their vehicle. The video, filmed at the side of a road in Jasper, shows the bear standing among some foliage while apparently sizing up the driver and their car. The bear suddenly breaks into a sprint, charging at the car, and the video shows the driver then honk the vehicle's horn and quickly roll up the window.
July 21 (UPI) -- A pickup truck owner in Britain shared video of an itchy horse using the vehicle's front end to enthusiastically scratch its backside. A video captured Thursday in West Clandon, Surrey, England, shows a horse with one of its hind legs completely off the ground as it forcefully rubs its buttocks against the front of the pickup truck. The horse's face contorts in expressions of apparent scratching satisfaction as the incredulous man films. "Hey, get off!"
July 21 (UPI) -- Officials with a Florida city's electric utility said more than 22,000 customers lost power when a large snake slithered onto a high voltage circuit breaker. The Jacksonville Electric Authority said more than 22,000 people lost power early Wednesday when the snake was electrocuted at the Orange Park substation. Power was restored by 5 a.m., JEA officials said. The snake, which a trapper identified as a red rat snake, did not survive.
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".
