Usually the job of security guards is to keep out intruders. But on Thursday night, some Honeywell guards are getting a big thank you for welcoming one and making sure he stayed. Last month, two security guards spotted something truly unsettling at the vacant Federal Complex at Bannister and Troost - a dog that was starving to death. “He was a skeleton with skin wrapped around it," said Jeanie Sparks, the sister of the dog's owner.
Kansas City police were in a standoff at 89th and Wornall. At around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, police were called to an area about a person who may be armed. After a disturbance at home, police say he broke a window in the house, ran from them into the Dollar Tree and locked himself in a room there, refusing to come out. Around 8:15 p.m., police led the man out the front door. He was transported to an area hospital for medical treatment, as he cut himself after breaking a window.
Police say three arrests have been made in the drive-by shooting death of 10-year-old girl Machole Stewart. The arrests were made on Wednesday, according to the Kansas City, KS Police Department. Tommy Benson, Cedric Sanders and Donald Martis have been charged with first-degree murder. KCK police are looking for a fourth suspect identified as Ja'son Johnson. She was killed during a drive-by shooting at her mother’s house in the 1400 block of New Jersey Avenue in Kansas City, KS on October 26, 2014.
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".
