Jhonny Pimental Aybar was once one of the state's most wanted sex offenders, convicted of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl and was wanted for not registering as a sex offender. But the name on the wanted poster wasn't his real name. 5 Investigates discovered he had been living under the assumed identity of Caled Donatiu thanks in part to a drivers license he was able to get from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles under that name.
The arrest of a Massachusetts constable in New Hampshire for allegedly selling heroin in a New Hampshire Babys "R" Us parking lot is raising new concerns over the powers these loosely regulated officials have as calls for reform continue on Beacon Hill. Police said they watched last week as 47-year-old Rafael Concepcion of Methuen sold 8 grams of heroin in the parking lot for $110. When police searched him he was carrying a Massachusetts constables badge with his name on it.
The wood-based, lightweight construction – the kind used to build the Dorchester building that burned on Wednesday – is being eyed as a possibly contributing factor to the speed with which the building burned. The reliance on light-weight wood as opposed to metal and concrete is a common practice, but without sprinklers they will burn faster, Robert Solomon, a fire safety engineer with the National Fire Protection Association, told 5 Investigates’ Karen Anderson.
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".
