BOSTON - It could be all the frustration over the miserable weather or maybe because parking in Boston is never easy, but Boston 25 News found people lashing out and committing crimes over parking spaces. Slashed tires, smashed windows, bent windshield wipers – all acts of vandalism committed in the name of a parking space. Didn’t want us to show her face or use her real name. Earlier this week, she says somebody in Southie folded one of her windshield wipers in half.
HAVERHILL, Mass. - Every year, Tom Hardy designs creative costumes for his son, Tommy, by transforming a simple wheelchair into magical and inventive characters. For one night every year. Tommy goes trick-or-treating in the coolest Halloween costume in the neighborhood. His father has been working around the clock to create this year's “Game of Thrones”-inspired costume. The Hardy family loves “Game of Thrones,” so it was only fitting that little Tommy would be flying with dragons this Halloween.
"At the heart of the Russian fraud is an essential, embarrassing insight into American life: large numbers of Americans are ill-equipped to assess the credibility of the things they read." -The New Yorker’s @eosnos (via @brianstelter@ReliableSources)
This video was recorded by a resident on the 4th floor of the Brook House Condominiums. Brookline Deputy Fire Chief said they’re “looking into a possible hoarding situation.” Also, building doesn’t have sprinklers. No one hurt. @boston25https://t.co/MoGs3yuSFr
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".
