The director of the Douglas County Department of Corrections said Wednesday that the death of inmate Steven Claycamp, 61, on Tuesday "is a very sad situation." Claycamp died following an altercation with a guard at the Douglas County jail. According to a sergeant with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Claycamp was trying to leave his cell when a guard intervened. That's when the altercation happened. Guards were able to restrain Claycamp. He was then taken to the medical unit to be checked out.
Omaha police and fire crews responded to the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian bridge Monday morning for a man who had possibly jumped into the river. According to Battalion Chief Carmichael, two brothers were arguing on the bridge when one of the men thought the other had jumped into the river. That brother then ran down to the shore and swam into the water, thinking he was going to save his sibling. However, the first brother was still standing on the bridge's ledge.
The City of Omaha primary election is here and 23 percent of voters are expected to cast their ballots on Tuesday. It takes an army to make Election Day happen. 1,200 election workers will be lending a hand at 182 polling places across the city. Election officials believe the mayoral race may lead to a higher voter turnout than in year's past. "I've seen yard signs, billboards, TV, radio," said Douglas County Election Commissioner Brian Kruse.
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".
