Attorney General Maura Healey, along with attorneys general from 38 other states, is seeking information from five opioid manufacturers and three distributors, as they expand an investigation into the origins of the addiction crisis that has claimed thousands of lives. At an announcement Tuesday in Boston, Healey said the attorneys general are looking into whether manufacturers misrepresented the dangers of prescription painkillers. “What did they know and when did they know it?” Healey asked.
The road to recovery for the Boston College students who were sprayed with acid in France will depend on where the acid struck them and how deeply it burned, two Boston burn surgeons said. Little is known about the nature of four students’ injuries, which occurred in an attack Sunday in the southern city of Marseille, by a woman described as “deranged.” French officials said they have no evidence to suggest it was a terrorist attack.
Bit by bit, Ruth Rosenfield stopped feeling like herself. Normally sociable and active, she slogged through each day, struggling to initiate any activity, often seeing no reason to get out of bed. The Stoughton retiree knew what was wrong, because she’d been there twice before: depression. In her previous two bouts, she had recovered with the help of medication. But this time, at age 70, she was stuck.
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".
