A tractor-trailer knocked down power lines in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood Friday, knocking out power for many. Neighbors were stunned to see the 18-wheeler caught beneath a tangle of wires and a telephone pole. The truck was driving up Wretham Street around 9 a.m., when it brought down low hanging wires, causing a pole to snap. Eversource tells NBC Boston that some residents were without power for about an hour while crews removed the truck and made repairs.
An Azores Airlines flight drifted off the runway while landing at Logan Airport on Sunday, which has left passengers stuck in Boston for days. The FAA is now looking into how the runway incident was caused. Passengers like Marina Goulart and her sister Natasha Brown, from California, have been stuck in Boston since Monday morning. "My uncle is getting married. We want to see our family," said Goulart. Brown said, "We don't see them very often, only every four or five years."
A battle surrounding the new high school in Lowell, Massachusetts, is continuing after officials voted to move it to the suburbs. People in the city are split over where it should be built or if the current location should be renovated. "I think it should be at Cawley," said Andrews Bonsu. "I'm up for Lowell High to Cawley," he said. "They should just keep this building," argued Tyresse Gutierrez.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
