Texting and driving isn't new, but technology that stops drivers from doing it certainly is. Enter people like Mark Giga with AT&T, which launched a smart phone app a few years ago that stops you from getting texts while driving. "It just takes the temptation away," Giga says. "Once you turn on the app and start driving, the minute you hit going 15 miles an hour or faster, you no longer will receive text message notifications on your smart phone."
MINNEAPOLIS - The death of Justine Damond at the hands of a Minneapolis Police officer has elected officials asking questions about the city's body camera policy. City Councilman Andrew Johnson is calling for an audit of the department's policy in the wake of the fatal shooting. "And actually overlap it with the dispatch data to see if our compliance is what the public and what policy-makers expect,” he said.
MINNEAPOLIS -- It is touted as a big time event with high-flying action. And it’s clear why fans came to U.S. Bank Stadium to watch the X Games. "It appeals to people on a more accessible level. Everyone grew up with a skateboard or a bike or a scooter,” said Zach Green, of Minneapolis. But not everyone is familiar with the competition so below are just a few of the basics. ESPN started the X Games in 1995 as a way to capture the audience that wasn't watching traditional sports.
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".
