DAYTON, Ohio -- Posters that simulated a crime scene showing the body outlines of rival sports teams have been removed from a high school after parents became upset, according to reports. The posters at Belmont High School, which were put up last weekend, drew ire in the wake of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the Associated Press reports. "They're shocking," Christopher Hall, a parent in the Dayton district, tells the Dayton Daily News. "These shootings are on our minds."
CLERMONT COUNTY, Ohio -- The county sheriff's office says a jail inmate tried to hire another inmate to kill his pregnant ex-girlfriend in attempt to prevent her from testifying against him. Robert Clowers, 45, of Batavia Township, already is in jail awaiting trial on accusations that he kidnapped and assaulted his ex-girlfriend, WKRC Channel 12 reports.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Reports of threats are resulting in school districts canceling classes for Friday, and Columbus Schools say they will have an increased police presence because of threatening posts on social media. It reflects a national trend since the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead. The Dispatch reports Lancaster High School will be closed after receiving a threatening telephone call on Thursday. Other schools in the district will be open, the Dispatch reports.
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".
