A sting operation by the federal government snared 15 people for allegedly trafficking eagles and other protected birds in South Dakota, North Dakota and elsewhere. The two-year undercover operation dubbed "Project Dakota Flyer" was a joint venture by the Department of Justice and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Through the investigation they determined that the 15 people were killing hawks, eagles and owls, then selling their parts and feathers on the black market for profit.
The Black Hill Area Habitat for Humanity is turning the old Garfield Elementary School into the focal point of a neighborhood project on Dilger Avenue. "One of those homes will be our 100th home built here in the Black Hills area,” said Black Hills Habitat for Humanity Restore manager, Dallas Dalin. Habitat has been providing families with affordable housing for more than 25 years. The 100th home in the Black Hills is just one piece of a larger landscape.
Hundreds took part in a candlelight vigil to remember the five children who were killed in a house fire on Saturday. Tuesday night hundreds gathered on Ames Avenue, where the deadly blaze took place. "Thank you so much for everybody's support in this and coming out,” said a member of the victim’s family. Families of the children who died placed candles outside the home, others that attended offered teddy bears and flowers, in memory of the children.
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".
