HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Those who work and live near the Three Springs Juvenile Detention Facility in Madison say police should notify the public immediately anytime anyone escapes (or runs away from) a facility like this one. "If someone were to escape from the county jail, or if someone escaped from the Limestone Correctional Facility, I would want to know," said Terri Norg, the assistant manager of the Cricket Wireless store in the plaza where Monday's homicide investigation started.
HUNTSVILLE Ala. - WIth some ingenuity, and some inspiration from Pinterest and YouTube, sophomore resident assistant Tamia Barnes took some simple steps to next-level her dorm room this year, here at Alabama A&M University. On Monday, Ms. Barnes tweeted a photo of her dorm room in Foster Hall "to show my friends." Shortly after sharing the photo, the retweets, likes and questions began to pour in: 4,500+ retweets, 21,000 likes and 225 replies in the last week.
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Organizers of a four-day music festival that they hope becomes a Huntsville staple had many challenges going into its first day. They were up against skeptics who questioned whether the brand new venue was ready for a festival as well as locals who did not know there was a new tenant at the Mid-City development amongst the giant piles of orange dirt. (Mid-City is taking the place of the Madison Square Mall, which was recently demolished.) Then, they were up against the weather.
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".
