ARKANSAS (KFSM) -- With more than 143 million put at risk by a data breach at credit reporting firm Equifax, many people still do not know what to do to check if they are among the victims, or what to do if they are in fact affected. Equifax is one of three major credit bureaus used by banks, lenders, and businesses to approve loans and credit cards. On Thursday (Sept. 14), the Federal Trade Commission confirmed that it has launched an investigation into Equifax as a result of the breach.
ROGERS (KFSM) -- A new principal has taken over at the Arkansas Arts Academy High School in Rogers. Heather Wright, a former Chemistry teacher, was unanimously approved by the school board during a special meeting on Thursday (Sept. 7). Wright's promotion came about a month after former principal Barb Padgett abruptly resigned, leading to protests from both students and parents.
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- A Facebook post by a Fayetteville city councilor has gained attention for what some are calling its honest nature. Sarah Marsh, an alderman in Ward 1, Position 2, created the post on her personal Facebook page on Monday (Sept. 11). In it, she talked about the difficulty of moving from Seattle back to Fayetteville seven years ago for health reasons.
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".
