Joe Mathieu: World leaders are meeting in Germany for a major conference on climate change. The nations are all parties to the Paris Agreement, which President Trump has announced the U.S. is withdrawing from. But that's not stopping many from Massachusetts from showing up in Germany to declare their support. WGBH radio's environmental reporter Craig LeMoult is here to talk with us about that. Good morning, Craig. JM: What's the goal of the meeting?
The U.S. Virgin Islands were among the hardest hit areas by Hurricane Irma. Tonia Magras, a St. Thomas native and former WGBH employee, now lives in Waltham and has been struggling to keep in contact with her family in the Caribbean since the storm hit. WGBH's Morning Edition host Joe Mathieu spoke with Magras about how her family is doing. Below is a transcript of their conversation. Click on the audio player above to listen to the interview.
JOE MATHIEU: You're listening to WGBH is Morning Edition. I'm Joe Mathieu. One of the things to come from the two hurricanes we've experienced recently — Harvey two weeks ago, and now Irma — has been closer ties between WGBH News and our public radio colleagues in East Texas and South Florida. Yesterday, 89.7 carried the reporting of WLRN in Miami. We live streamed their coverage all afternoon.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
