For 19 years, a Mesa family has lived in agony. That’s how long Mikelle Biggs, who was 11 years old back in 1999, has been missing. “One of my fears, and I used to dream about this when I was little, is that she (Mikelle) would be found and she would come home and she wouldn’t remember us because of whatever she went through, “said Kimber Biggs on Friday morning as she remembered her sister Mikelle.
Saturday morning was exciting for Coletta Spurling, the owner of Los Olivos Car Wash at 3rd Street and McDowell Road in Central Phoenix. Saturday was the last day the car wash was opened to the public. The corner is programmed to be redeveloped into a condo complex. "It was a hard thing to do, it really was...but things have changed," said Coletta. That change is what brought Coletta to finally give in and sell the car wash she's owned since 1989.
Dozens of family members said goodbye to their loved ones Friday morning at the Papago Park Military Reservation near 50th Street and McDowell Road. More than 50 Arizona National Guard men and women are being deployed to the naval base at Guantanamo Bay for approximately 9 months. "Operation Enduring Freedom is the over-arching mission. This is the part of the operation that oversees what we are doing at Guantanamo Bay," said Col. Joseph Baldwin of the Arizona National Guard.
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".
