(CBS) — A kind of treasure chest of memories was lost about half a decade ago – that is, until a Fox River Grove man unlocked its secrets. In May, photographer Josh Zuelke was visiting Florida when he found a camera. “It was all rusty and had barnacles on it,” he tells CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross. He took home what remained of a waterproof camera and then carefully cut out the memory card.
(CBS) – An Amtrak conductor shot at Naperville’s train station last month is still hospitalized but on the mend and with high spirits, his wife tells reporters. Michael Case’s wife, Sara, has been by his bedside every day ever since the May 16 shooting. Weeks ago, the 45-year-old Amtrak employee was in critical condition. Today, he’s in serious condition but is no longer in the ICU. His family continues to be grateful for that improvement. Case’s family was at his side on Father’s Day.
(CBS) — A traffic stop leaves a Chicago firefighter injured — and fearing for her life. On Wednesday, Tamala Watkins says she was pulled over for speeding. The firefighter was in uniform, on her way to work and felt something wasn’t right. A different officer may have felt it, too, stopping his squad to talk to her. “I didn’t get out until the other officer who pulled alongside of me gave me permission,” Watkins tells CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross.
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".
