In 1997, Fred Baker was a senior corrections officer at Bayside State Prison in New Jersey. An inmate ended his life by fatally stabbing him. Fifteen years later, to the day, his family was gathered around Acting Governor Kim Guadagno and Assemblyman Nelson Albano to sign a bill titled “Fred Baker’s Law,” making July 30 an annual recognition in New Jersey of Corrections Officer’s Day. “It is truly my honor to have some small part in making sure your son’s honored yet again,” said Governor Guadagno.
Sergeant Dennis Weichel, 29, of the Rhode Island National Guard, was riding in a convoy in eastern Afghanistan when some children were spotted in the road ahead, picking up shell casings, which are recycled for money. The soldiers in the convoy got out of their vehicles to get the children out of the way of the heavy trucks coming later. The huge, armored MRAPs, or Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle, can weigh as much as 16 tons.
“You Love the Fire Department More than Me” While these are words no firefighter ever wants to hear – sometimes it seems that way. Perhaps that’s why Odyssey Online thought “Things to Know Before Dating a Firefighter” was so important to share. Pay special attention to #10. And #14. And… well, actually… all of them.

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".
