When it comes to Thanksgiving, food and family are everything – even for first responders working the holiday. It started with a Facebook post a few years back from some Wilmington cops requesting home-cooked food from their friends on the holiday. That small request sparked an annual tradition, one that now feeds more than 750 first responders every Thanksgiving. "Food is love and food is family," said Doug Carradin, president and CEO of the Trauma Survivors Foundation.
New Castle County Police have made another arrest in a gang investigation which last month sent 11 people to jail for the sale of cocaine and marijuana in the Edgemoore area. Last week, police located 23-year-old Darius Dennis in the unit block of Salisbury Drive and arrested him without incident, police said. They said he had a felony quantity of crack-cocaine on him, packaged for sale in small units. His arrest is associated with a Exit4/Mag Boys Gang investigation, police said.
A man was robbed with a BB gun Saturday night by four young men in Dover, according to city police. Officers were called about 7 p.m. to the area of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard for the report of an armed robbery, said Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman, a spokesman with Dover Police Department. There, a 28-year-old described to police how he was walking near River Road when four young men approached him and pointed what appeared to be a handgun at him, Hoffman said.
Lots and lots to be thankful for this year, including family I love more than anything, colleagues who care, a boss like @Phil_Freedman who gave me the day off, and a life that is filled with endless love + surprises.
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".
