Dramatic helmetcam video shows the moment a desperate man tossed a child from three stories up during a raging apartment fire in Georgia — and into the arms of Capt. Scott Stroup, a firefighter from the DeKalb County Fire Department. The fire occurred before dawn Jan. 3 at the Avondale Forest Apartments, WXIA-TV reported, adding that 12 people were injured — eight of whom were children. “We were catching babies like a football — literally,” Capt. Eric Jackson said, CBS News reported.
A Massachusetts college has created a list of bias-incident examples — and one infraction just might get your rethinking your magic marker choices. Williams College declares that “displaying a sign that is color-coded pink for girls and blue for boys” is among 21 bias-incident scenarios folks can report to school authorities.
Surveillance video of a trio of attackers brutally beating up a librarian — who did nothing more than walk down a Cincinnati street just after midnight last year — is difficult to watch. Detective Dan Kreider told the Enquirer it was one of the two worst beating cases he’s ever handled. The surveillance video also was hard for Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Jody Luebbers to look at. She had been viewing it on a laptop Thursday in court when she suddenly stopped it, the paper reported.
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".
