Proceeds from an auction of James “Whitey” Bulger’s collection of odd keepsakes — from a fake Stanley Cup championship ring to a cup in the shape of a rat — are being doled out to loved ones of his murder victims. Mary Callahan, 77, told the Herald last night she just received her cut — $9,656. “No cover letter. Just a check from the U.S. Department of Treasury, Bureau of Fiscal Service,” Callahan said.
In a chilling example of the reach of the opiate epidemic, Chelsea police officer Deryn DiOrio rushed himself to the hospital after being exposed to the killer drug fentanyl. The 26-year-old and two colleagues — who were also hospitalized — felt light-headed after responding to a crash late Friday afternoon where the occupants appeared to have overdosed. A white powdery substance was found inside a cigarette box, police said. The scene was quickly declared a hazmat situation.
A brash Martin Shkreli — the so-called “Pharma Bro” found guilty Friday on three counts of securities fraud — said he’s “delighted” by the jury’s verdict and is ready to serve a short stint in jail for his “slap on the wrist.”“I grew up on the mean streets of Brooklyn, so a few months in jail doesn’t bother me,” he said yesterday during a telephone interview with the Herald. “We won the (expletive) case,” he added from his Manhattan home. “We proved I didn’t fraud anybody.
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".
