Turning tragedy into triumph: that's the goal of a Polar Plunge fundraiser happening soon in the small town of Rye. The event will honor Rye High School student Maggie Peters who passed away two years ago. The money raised will go to a scholarship fund for seniors at Rye High School. Maggie's mom told News 5 that it will give other students the opportunity to achieve their dreams, something she wanted for her own daughter. "Maggie would graduate this year.
Christmas is still a few weeks away, but a grinch is already trying to steal people's holiday cheer and their trees. It happened to one couple in Pueblo. As News 5 found out, the couple planted four miniature Douglas firs in June. One day, they hoped to decorate the trees for the holidays once they were bigger. However, after a visit from a thief, only one tree remains outside their home. "Watch out because there's no telling what somebody is wanting to take."
Team USA skeleton racer Katie Uhlaender is now in line for her first Olympic medal. It's after Elena Nikitina and other Russian athletes were stripped of their 2014 Sochi medals for doping. It's a ruling that came down last week. "The Russians have been stripped. They're banned for life. You are now an Olympic bronze medalist." That's what Uhlaender's head coach, Tuffy Latour, told her on the phone this past Wednesday. '"My first response was "Tuffy, this was a team effort.
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".
