KUSA – They are eight of the many who responded to the Aurora theater shooting on July 20, 2012. Each one considers their colleagues the true heroes of that night. Not one considers himself a hero. Our story on their story will air Wednesday night to help honor their roles five years after one of the worst mass shootings in this country’s history. Before that story airs, however, we wanted to allow you the opportunity to hear from them in their own words.
KUSA – Theirs aren’t exactly household names, but I wouldn’t argue with you if you felt they should be. While 1,200 people ran out of Aurora’s Century 16 movie theater on July 20, 2012, they – along with dozens of other police officers – ran in. Until now, their story has never been told in such a public way. Recently, the eight officers decided it was finally time to share what they went through that night and what they continue to go through to this day. Some are doing ok.
BOULDER - Once thought banished to the shelves of nostalgia, cassette tapes appear to be making at least a minor comeback within a generation tired of impersonal and intangible downloads. Perhaps nowhere is that more clear inside the headquarters of First Base Tapes in Boulder, Colorado.
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".
