A Spanish radio station in Springfield's South End is doing their part in helping the people of Puerto Rico devastated by Hurricane Maria. Phones have been ringing off the hook at 107.9 La Hora Zero, the radio station in Springfield's South End, as they raise money for the victims of Hurricane Maria. "We decided to open the radio station to do a radio marathon for Puerto Rico," said Evelyn Edwards. And donations are coming in quicker than the staff at the station can take them.
Students came together after a discriminatory act on the campus of Westfield State University. Hundreds of students held a vigil and discussion tonight after racist comments were left inside a student’s dorm room, and they would like to see something done on campus. Westfield State University Junior Kiara Dade has come home the past three nights to racist messages posted to her dorm room door. “This person, if caught, will be dismissed from the university,” said President Ramon Torrecilha.
There was some confusion on whether a popular Springfield restaurant and landmark is indeed closing. Some people were left confused after seeing on social media that Red Rose Pizza is closing, but don't fear. It's not the one in Springfield. It all started on social media. The owners of Red Rose said that they got a call from a friend saying they saw on Facebook that they were closing, but they want to be clear: they are not closing.
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".
