Last week we brought to you a story of a dog that went through a traumatic experience, being found abandoned on South Mulford Road with a rare injury that possibly pointed to abuse--and because we bonded so well with the dog--we thought i'd check in to see how our little friend was doing. Artie the dog has some new digs, and a new 'leash' on life. This is the same dog we introduced to you last week that had a possible severe chemical burn on its face, an injury that also resulted in cloudy eyes.
Rockford - It can be very difficult for people whose family members are in the military--often going long stretches of time without seeing their loved ones. But today, two little girls got to experience a sacred moment, seeing their big sister come home. What took place behind the walls at Washington Elementary School was a truly special moment. Elementary school students Elisa and Erica Solis getting the surprise of their lives.
Rockford - We started this week with our largest snowfall of this season, many areas picking up close to 5 inches from Sunday to Monday night. To end the week--we've got a warmup. This may be good news for most of us, but for some......not so much. Tarps cover piles of snow in Sinnissippi Park as preparations are underway one of Rockfordians favorite winter events. Nearly 100 talented sculptors lining the street to showcase their eye-opening work.
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".
