First of all, when it comes to purchasing an item, consumers should always ask for a gift receipt. Not only will the person getting the gift appreciate it, but so will the store. “I think retailers really appreciate when you ask for a gift receipt,” sad Felecia Thompson of the Phoenix Better Business Bureau. “It makes the return process a lot smoother if someone comes back to exchange or return the item."
Microwave oven caught fire while being used according to Gilbert homeowner. 13 Nov. 2017 (Source: 3TV/CBS 5 News)Mario Perfetti is Italian, and being Italian, he says food is love. "The marinara sauce. The pasta, the meat, the meatballs you know,” he tells 3 On Your Side from his Gilbert kitchen. But recently, Perfetti wasn't up for a big Italian meal. Instead, he and his adult son wanted a snack. So, they got out a bag of popcorn, threw it in the microwave oven, and hit the "popcorn" button.
When you add up all the money 3 On Your Side was able to save or get refunded for the month of October, it totals $11,119. (Source: 3TV)Fernando Castro says all he wanted to do was fence in a portion of his Goodyear property so he could get horses just like his neighbors. But, after handing $1,500 to an unlicensed contractor, he says the job was started but quickly abandoned. “There was always excuses like, 'My employee fell. I'm too busy right now.' Just a lot of broken promises," Castro replied.
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".
