The Lowell goat may have made a name for itself earlier this summer, but one Millbury goat wanted in on the fun this past weekend. Escaping from Blash’s Pig Farm in Millbury on Friday, the goat took a trip to Auburn. By Friday at 6 a.m., residents were calling police about the goat seen wandering around their town. The goat was spotted in at least 6 different spots during its first 24 hours on the run.
Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel blasted US Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade on Wednesday night for their responses to his passionate monologue criticizing the GOP health care bill one night earlier. “I’m sorry, he does not understand,” Cassidy told CNN, referring to Kimmel’s accusation that Cassidy, a senator from Louisiana, had lied to his face about his plans for the new health care bill.
Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico on Wednesday morning as a Category 4 storm, the strongest hurricane to hit the island in over 80 years. The 155-mile-per-hour winds crushed balconies, bent gates, downed trees, and brought widespread flooding to the island. The storm also brought an island-wide power outage, and officials do not know when electricity will return. The storm continued to bring rain to Puerto Rico overnight Wednesday.
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".
