Doctors are weighing in on whether or not to get a flu shot (WFSB)To get a flu shot or not to get a flu shot...that is the question. It's a medical debate that has been going on for years, and while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that nearly everyone gets vaccinated, some doctors in Connecticut don't necessarily agree. As a professional pilot, the FAA requires him to get a routine physical every six months, but getting the influenza vaccine is not mandatory.
Irma is gone and now residents are ready to start cleaning up (WFSB)Hurricane Irma may have passed through Florida, but the cleanup is far from over. In a FaceTime interview, Glastonbury’s Lindsey Rutka gave Channel 3 a tour of some of the damage in Pompano Beach, Florida on Monday. There were many trees down, lots of debris, and even a small plane's nose in the ground because of the wind.
The Hartford boxing program is feeling the effects of a lack of budget (WFSB)It's a safe place for kids to go after school, and for more than two decades, the Hartford boxing program has been changing lives. But with no state budget in place, it's now in danger of being knocked out. Every weekday afternoon for the last four years, you can find Edison Vazquez training at "Bright Futures" in Hartford. “If I wasn't boxing, I don't know what I’d be doing,” Vazquez said.
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".
