Thirty-seven years ago, when alone with her younger sister’s body at a funeral home in Crowley, Jan Tunnell Webster made a vow. Before her, 21-year-old Cheryl Tunnell Springfield lay in a light blue-cloth covered casket — the color chosen by their mom because she thought it made her youngest daughter look warm.
Call it the Christmas miracle on Hulen Street. A man narrowly escaping being hit by a skidding sport utility vehicle on Tuesday afternoon — a near-collision that was caught on video. The man was walking with a shopping bag on the sidewalk when an approaching SUV began to skid toward him after losing control on a rain-slick curve on Hulen, just south of Granbury Road in southwest Fort Worth.
A man whose mother recently made him sell two assault-style rifles because she was afraid he’d harm himself or others now stands accused in the random fatal shooting of a 55-year-old man in October. Billy Joe Williams Sr. had been walking to pick up his grandchildren from the school bus stop on the afternoon of Oct. 25 when he was shot at least twice by the driver of a passing car in the 6000 block of Grayson Street, according to homicide Detective E. Pate.
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".
