WASHINGTON — Schools in Arlington, Virginia, have specifically banned a new type of e-cigarette that has gained popularity among local teenagers: the Juul. “We are seeing the vaping and the ‘Juuling’ across the board in middle and high schools here in Arlington County,” said Jenny Sexton, a substance abuse counselor at Kenmore Middle School in Arlington. “It has become a huge issue. We’ve had experiences with kids doing it right in front of other people — right in class, right in lunch.
WASHINGTON — Is a joint funding agreement for Metro agreed to by Maryland, D.C., and Virginia in peril? Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is strongly hinting at that, expressing frustration at a letter that the D.C. Council sent to Mayor Muriel Bowser arguing that the District’s share in the $500 million agreement is too much. “Maryland and Virginia’s money is all contingent upon D.C. coming up with theirs,” said Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.
WASHINGTON — The FBI remembered a solemn anniversary last Friday: the 11th observance of the day former FBI agent Robert Levinson was last seen alive in Iran. Levinson was taken from Kish Island in Iran while working on a CIA operation. The Iranian government initially announced his detainment, then quickly denied knowing what happened to Levinson. “This is something the FBI has never forgotten. His fellow agents have never forgotten Bob,” said Tom O’Connor, the head of the FBI Agents Association.
Just in: truck driver killed when his tractor trailer ended up pinning him against a dump truck. Happened around 7a at the SB I-95 rest stop in Howard County. Investigators headed to scene. Truckers won't be able to enter their parking lot at that rest stop. More @WTOP
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".
