Following a three month investigation into the mysterious death of a Border Patrol agent in West Texas, the FBI has announced it found no evidence to support earlier claims that the agent was attacked or murdered. Agent Rogelio Martinez and his partner, Stephen Garland, were found at the bottom of a culvert near Van Horn, about 120 miles southeast of El Paso, in November. Both men were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, and Martinez died the next day.
In early December, I stood on a limestone bluff above a timbered gulch in the Big Snowy Mountains Wilderness Study Area, 91,000 acres of the wildest land left in Montana. No houses, transmission lines or roads interrupted the expanse of green, about 30 miles outside Lewistown. No smoke curling up from cabin stovepipes.
Artemisia the Panda-Piglet Power Puppy was born on July 4, 2011, and came into my life two months later. She is a terror, a master napper, a nipper at skirt-hems. She has the thighs of an Olympic sprinter and a six-foot vert. She likes to roll in poop and dead stuff, which everyone knows is the dog equivalent of a firm handshake in terms of judging character. She is my hero and my best friend. Arty's butt is so heavy that she's always swimming uphill, but she doesn't let that get her down.
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".
