NEW BEDFORD (CBS) – A New Bedford woman is facing child abuse and animal cruelty charges after police discovered her Query Street home in deplorable condition. “I was in disbelief. Why didn’t anyone know or hear or see anything?” said Stephanie Goncalves, who works nearby. It was employees from a local business that first tipped off police when they saw an emaciated stray dog last weekend. “The dog was really skinny. You could see bones. I just feel bad.
LEOMISNTER (CBS) – There are questions and concern in Leominster, after a nurse found an infant wrapped in a blanket next to her car. UMass Memorial Health Alliance is a Baby Safe Haven facility, but the baby was left outside on the ground. The state’s Safe Haven Act allows a parent to legally surrender their newborn, 7 days old or younger, at a hospital, police station, or manned fire station without facing criminal prosecution.
WORCESTER (CBS) – A Massachusetts pilot who helped rescue shelter pets from the disaster in Puerto Rico is back home and to make his homecoming even better, he was reunited with one dog he fell in love with while he was there. On a dark Worcester runway they landed Wednesday, the “Wings of Rescue”, carrying some very precious cargo. “I get teary eyed thinking about it because these dogs have been through so much,” said Leigh Grady of the Animal Shelter of Sterling.
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".
