- A woman pointed what appeared to be a handgun at employees of the Kardashian sisters' West Hollywood boutique on Thursday and knocked some items off a shelf, but left without injuring anyone, then returned hours later wielding a machete. No members of the Kardashian family were believed to be at the DASH women's clothing store at 8420 Melrose Ave. when the woman initially showed up around 11:20 a.m.
- When you talk to people around Chatsworth you hear about how transients are becoming more aggressive. How there are homeless who walk into stores and walk out with things they didn't buy. In some extreme cases store owners are made to feel terrorized. A case in point. On Saturday, a flower shop owner - we'll just call her Diana - was working in her store when she heard noise at her front window. It was an aggressive woman believed to be a local homeless transient by the store owner.
- When we first brought you this story a couple of weeks ago there was fear and frustration at the Sikh Temple on the corner of Finley and Vermont in Los Feliz. Words of hate were scrawled on the outdoor walls of the Temple in three different locations. With the help of a cell phone video, an eyewitness and social media police now have the name of a suspect and are trying to find him. Nirinjan Singh Khalsa is the Director of the California Sikh Council.
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".
