A Cape Cod man stumbled upon a valuable keepsake that was lost on a beach 47 years ago. Jim Wirth hunts for lost treasures. He sweeps beaches and listens for his metal detector to go off. On a July morning, he found something special — a class ring from Manhattan College, Class of 1969. His chance find did not take him to a pawn shop. Instead, it set him off on a mission to find its owner. The name engraved inside was Patrick O'Hagan. His major on the side was "EE," for electrical engineering.
The solar eclipse is Aug. 21 and it will be quite the sight. Although some parts of the country will see a total eclipse of the sun, New England will have a partial eclipse. Experts warn that looking at even the partial eclipse with the naked eye could cause blindness, even though the sun is 93 million miles away. "We’re really talking about a huge amount of energy. It is not something that our eyes are used to looking right at. It’s just too dangerous," said Eric O'Dea with the Museum of Science.
A frightening tick borne virus that cannot be treated has surfaced. It is called the "Bourbon Virus." Researchers named it that because the first case was reported in Bourbon County, Kansas in 2014. A Minnesota woman died after contracting it last month. Routine testing for the virus does not exist, but it is thought to be transmitted by ticks. The CDC is looking into more extensive testing, but treatment does not currently exist according to Dr. Kristina Orio with AFC Urgent Care.
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".
