Police calls are common in area where S.A. cop was killedFew residents have lived at the trendy Tobin Lofts apartments longer than Sebastian Sanchez, and he’s never felt unsafe in the bustling neighborhood near downtown that draws an eclectic mix of college students, bar hoppers and occasionally people begging for money.
In the wake of the deadly hot-air balloon crash that killed 16 people near Lockhart last year, Sen. Ted Cruz filed a bill this week that would put balloon pilots on par with other types of pilots and require them to undergo medical exams. “This is a big win,” said Patricia Morgan, whose daughter and granddaughter from San Antonio were killed in the July 30 crash, which was the deadliest in U.S. history. “Now it’s got to be passed,” she said.
“The Thirst” is Norwegian author Jo Nesbø’s latest installment in the saga of Oslo’s most brilliant and troubled police detective, Harry Hole, who has traveled the world hunting serial killers. Hole is very, very good at what he does — even as he wonders if he’s becoming more and more like his sadistic prey with every case. We don’t have the pleasure of meeting this complicated detective until several chapters into the book. Because for once in his life, Harry is happy.
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".
