DUBLIN (KRON) — As the popularity of fentanyl has grown on the streets, it has caused dangerous exposure to police dogs working in the field. Police now need NARCAN kits for their K-9 partners in the event they are exposed during a search. On Friday, KRON4 learned of a new partnership that could help save K-9 lives. Canine handlers with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office have a special attachment to their dogs. “This is my partner,” Deputy Chris Delima said.
I know a lot about chemicals. My father was a professional firefighter who died of esophageal cancer. After his autopsy, his toxicology report showed that his body carried five chemicals that are flame retardants used in upholstered furniture. Unfortunately, if you’re in the fire service, or have a family member in the fire service, then cancer will always hit close to home. Cancer is the No. 1 cause of line-of-duty deaths for professional firefighters.
OAKLAND (KRON) — An Oakland home was vandalized, and now police are searching for the suspects. Rick Hirsch walked out of his home in the Rockridge District of Oakland on Wednesday morning only to find that he and his family were subjected to Anti-Semitic graffiti. The word “Jew” was scrawled on his trash can. As the father of two, Hirsch was concerned about the effect on the neighborhood children as well as his own.
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".
