OAKLAND (KRON) — A cancer-causing compound in East Bay drinking water has reached a near critical level, with concentrations of the compound higher than they have been in the last 20 years. This came to light Tuesday in a report by the East Bay Municipal Utility District, which provides drinking water to 1.4 million people, and the district also assured KRON4 the water is safe to use. Two places have reached the near critical level–Lafayette and the Oakland Hills.
DUBLIN (KRON) — A child took a terrible tumble off a brand new water slide Saturday in the East Bay, and on Tuesday night, there are questions as to whether the slide should have ever opened. KRON4 dug deeper into what happened at The Wave water park in Dublin. That boy is OK, but an investigation is underway to figure out why the boy did not have a smooth landing as he came down the three-story slide. The water slide will remain closed until the investigation is finished. That could be weeks.
CASTRO VALLEY (KRON) — “I was sad and mad when somebody stole it.”In the East Bay, a boy with autism had all of his baseball gear stolen. And he is taking the news really hard. The alleged thief has taken away more than just his equipment, but possibly, the kid’s ability to play the rest of the season as well as the family’s sense of security. The family wanted to share their story with KRON4’s Justine Waldman. But Chandler is missing all of his equipment to play in the Castro Valley Little League.
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".
