The first tentative sounds of boiling were coming from the kettle on the stove. Mom turned off the burner and used a pot holder to carry it to the kitchen table. We slid our ceramic mugs together to make the pouring easier for her; it was time to start paying attention to all that "naughty or nice" stuff. "Thanks, Mom," we said as she filled our cups with made-from-scratch hot chocolate. "Can we have marshmallows?" my brother asked.
Todd Earl is chief deputy for the Freeborn County Sheriff's Office. The fire was reported around nine o'clock Sunday night, and Clarks Grove firefighters were on the scene within minutes. "Heather happened to hear a noise and figured that it was coming from inside the wall it sounded like and was able to alert the family and get everybody out safely,” Freeborn county emergency management director Rich Hall said.
The sign said "Dangerous Curves," with a diagram of the road ahead. It looked like something drawn with a Spirograph.Below the squiggle was an ominous advisory: "Watch For Falling Rock. "The visibility had been dropping for the last 20 minutes as the mountain road climbed into low-hanging clouds. Only the tops of the trees were visible on the other side of a guard rail, and I was pretty sure I wouldn't be aware of a falling rock until it landed on the car.
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".
