An accident involving a car and a tractor trailer early Wednesday morning caused major backups on I-91 South and into I-291 in Springfield. Wednesday marks one of the most busiest travel days of the year, and travelers who got up to get a head start early certainly felt that this morning. State Police said the accident happened at Exit 4. Minor injuries were reported. According to AAA, an extra 1.5 million people are traveling this year, and with many others on the road, your options seem limited.
Transportation will be now be available for students living near a Berkshire Avenue in Springfield. This decision comes after an 11-year-old Up Academy student was hit by a car on her way to school Monday morning. Springfield police said the student was alert when she was taken to the hospital, but this incident raised a red flag for parents who are now fearful for their own children.
Health services at UMass Amherst are urging students to get vaccinated for type B meningitis, after a second case of the disease was found in a student. The student lived in a residence hall and is in stable condition. For any student looking to get the vaccine, the Health Services office opens at 8 a.m. This is the second case on campus since October, and because these two students were not in contact with each other, doctors say that is a major concern.
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".
