Authorities were investigating the scene of a crash involving two cars in the Westlake area of Los Angeles that left a pedestrian in critical condition early Sunday morning. The collision occurred around 2 a.m. on the 2000 block of 8th Street, near the intersection with Alvarado Street, according to Los Angeles Police Officer Mario Cardona. One vehicle was overturned as a result of the collision's force, Cardona said.
A man who ran his car into the side of a La Mirada home was fatally shot moments before the crash, investigators said Saturday. Deputies were originally called regarding a gunshot victim in the 14100 block of Mansa Drive around 8 p.m. Friday, according to a statement from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department. Officials found a 29-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound inside a car that had crashed into a home's attached garage.
With Wednesday marking the first full day of summer, a young San Diego mother who was diagnosed with skin cancer shortly after giving birth to her son opened up about her yearlong battle as she sought to educate and warn others. Shelby Nish, 26, has always enjoyed spending time in the sun but only began sunscreen last year after she was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma when she gave birth to her son, Baron. “The doctor came in and said that they had found cancer in the placenta,” she recalled.
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".
