BRIDGEWATER, MA — There's a new gang in Bridgewater trying to take on the police, but they're a bit smaller and substantially less human. Sunday, the Bridgewater Police Department posted a video of four turkeys attacking one of their police cruisers. The video shows the group aggressively attacking the cruiser as it drives away. "Aggressive turkey's are a problem in town," Bridgewater Police said in the tweet.
BRAINTREE, MA — Part two of the bridge replacement project on Route 3 in Braintree is scheduled to take place this weekend. MassDOT Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver advised drivers Thursday to add extra time to their drive if they are heading towards the area and use Waze to keep up with travel times. From 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, MassDOT crews will replace the bridge on the southbound side of the highway. Last month, a northbound bridge was installed.
FOXBOROUGH, MA — There was no kneeling or booing this week during the playing of national anthem at Gillette Stadium Sunday. During the pregame singing, all players and coaches on the New England Patriots sideline stood together with a hand on their heart and another arm around the shoulders of a player next to them. The display of unity was expected and originally reported by ESPN earlier in the week. The show of unity follows a week of protests and kneeling across the league.
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".
