LYNN (CBS) — “Me? I work hard, I don’t want to give him money.”Azhar Ali, a Lynn convenience store owner, said that was his simple thought process when he refused to be a victim during an attempted robbery. It motivated him to fight back when a would-be thief entered his store and pushed a knife to his stomach on Wednesday. “He said ‘open the drawer, open the drawer.’ I said ‘no just tell me what you need.’ ‘No, I need money,” Ali recalled.
HAMPTON, N.H. (CBS) – It’s a troubling discovery that at one time was rare on Hampton Beach. A young girl stepped on a small needle while walking on the popular New Hampshire beach, and needed first aid from a lifeguard. “He took it out, administered first aid with hydrogen peroxide and so forth,” said chief of lifeguards Jim Donahue. The girl’s mother refused an ambulance, but the incident has raised a new level of awareness among lifeguards who are already highly trained in first aid.
TAUNTON (CBS) – It was a powerful encounter with Mother Nature for a Taunton woman and her ten-year-old daughter. Elly Alves had just picked daughter Amary up from school when they saw what looked like a large fireball hit the side of the car. “The lightning just went straight to my car and went boom,” said Alves. “It was very, very loud.”The tire rim absorbed the brunt of the strike and bears a small burn mark. It also struck fear in both of them.
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".
