Not everyone gets to see boards breaking, students flying mid-air and weapons blazed on a Friday night in New England. But at the Personal Best Karate Black Belt Spectacular, it was all that glamour plus more amazing performances by both local and national celebrities.
Talk is cheap, the saying goes. But several hundred friends, neighbors and law enforcement colleagues turned out at Lake-view Pavilion last Thursday night to give veteran police detective John Hannon a rich sendoff — and also to commiserate with his wife, Mary.“Maybe the hardest job for John is what lies ahead in retirement,” said Rev. Stephen Madden, former pastor of St. Mary’s Church, who returned to Foxboro for the occasion.
Although Boy Scouting tends to be a family affair, John Belanger of Foxboro’s Troop 7 got a double dose at his Eagle Scout induction ceremony, held at Bethany Congregational Church last Saturday afternoon.Along with his parents, Tina and Bill Belanger of Milton Lane, also participating in the Court of Honor were his younger brother, Sam, a Life Scout with Troop 7, and his uncle, Michael Belanger, who achieved Eagle rank in 1982.Michael Belanger counseled his nephew to be mindful of five key...
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".
