BOSTON (CBS) – When a Facebook video of a young man singing in a Watertown market went viral, we just had to find out more about him. And we weren’t the only ones who were surprised, and delighted. Gillie Assuncao is a deli guy at Russo’s Market in Watertown. He started as a dishwasher four months ago. “I can work on the counter, I can work on the deli, I can work on sandwiches, I make deliveries for catering,” he says. He’s also an extraordinary baritone.
BEVERLY (CBS) – It’s a neighborhood argument over solar panels, but not the kind you’re used to seeing on roof tops. These are on a pole, right in the owner’s front yard. And that is turning friends into adversaries on a small street in Beverly. The 20 solar panels mounted on a pole are based on a hydraulic structure that allows the panels to slowly turn and follow the sun. “We believe in going green,” says Lola Eanes, the owner. She and her husband installed the array about a year ago.
BOSTON (CBS) – It started out as maybe a protest, or maybe a joke, or maybe a little of both. But the City of Boston has washed away the hand painted bike lane on the Congress St. bridge. That cleanup happened late Wednesday night. On Thursday, some cyclists are saying what’s left of the artwork is drawing attention to bike safety. The picture that launched a thousand tweets shows the hand painted bike lane.
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".
