ST. LOUIS - For as long as he can remember, Mike Barnes of south St. Louis has always had a camera in his hands. “My mother handed me my first camera at age eight and that was it. I was hooked. I enjoy recording the moment,” he said. But now his love for all things cameras and photography has developed into a bit of detective work. “Now I’m just trying to locate the people or someone who knows them,” Barnes explained.
ST. LOUIS - Fallout continues to build over allegations of misconduct within the St. Louis County Police Department, including calls for St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar to resign. All of it is stemming from published reports this week that officers assigned to patrol MetroLink, were falling back on the job. At an unrelated news conference in Jefferson County on Monday, Belmar brushed off calls for his resignation. “It’s ridiculous.
ST. JACOB, ILL. - Taking care of rescued animals is a labor of love for Danette Alons. But never did she think she’d have to work as hard as she did earlier this week in downtown St. Louis. “I broke out into a cold sweat. Tears welled up. I didn’t know what I was going to do,” she said. Alons is the shelter manager for the Metro East non-profit animal rescue group Partners For Pets. On Wednesday, she picked up 30 cats and dogs from the Carol House Quick Fix Pet Clinic.
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".
