Gubernatorial candidates say state could do more to help BaltimoreTwo declared challengers to Gov. Larry Hogan addressed a dominant and intractable issue in Baltimore: violent crime. Should the state be doing more to help? The Democratic field in the governor's race next year is likely to grow. Ben Jealous, former president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and tech entrepreneur Alec Ross are the declared Democrats so far.
Baltimore officials are spending a hefty amount of the city's surplus funds to cover police overtime. For the first time, Police Commissioner Kevin Davis addressed on Wednesday changes he has made to keep a closer eye on where the money goes and to whom. A forensic audit is underway of overtime spending in the Police Department, the 11 News I-Team has learned. The fiscal year ends in two weeks, and overtime spending in the Baltimore Police Department is once again way over what was budgeted.
Baltimore's mayor and police commissioner promised on Wednesday a plan to better manage crime in the city over the summer, a time when crime traditionally gets worse. The plan comes as the trend in violent crime has gotten personal and the numbers show it. The act of murder in Baltimore increasingly is explained like this: "People have a beef. It doesn't get resolved and then the gun comes into play and someone ends up dead, not just wounded but dead."
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".
