Loose ground from last week’s flooding is still causing issues for some in Eastern Kentucky. Multiple sinkholes appeared overnight in a woman’s yard in Letcher County. Nancy Burke said while she was asleep multiple spots on her property caved in. “Well I was asleep and I hear 'bang bang bang,’” said BurkeBurke’s daughter, Janet Thompson, said she is scared for her mother since the area collapsing continues to move closer to her mother’s house.
Flooding last weekend, combined with more rain on Saturday is causing a family to evacuate from their home. KY-588 in Letcher County is breaking apart and now a slow-moving landslide is pushing Justin McNeely's father-in-law's house down the hill. So far, it has moved the home forward six inches off of its foundation.
For most people who are about to meet their best friend, “excited and nervous” are not words you would use to describe the meetup unless you are Larissa Casebolt. “It's been all the years and I never met her,” said Casebolt. “She kept sending me photos of her and her family and I did too.”Casebolt has been friends with Michelle Harper for close to 34 years, but they have never met. The two have been pen pals since grade school.
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".
