No plane can take off from or land at Robins Air Force Base without first talking with the forecasters in the Weather Flight. This team monitors conditions not just at the base or in central Georgia, but all over the globe. "At any time, we could have a flight going anywhere," said Staff Sgt. Nathan Andrews. He says they use much of the same technology as the 13WMAZ weather team, but they must look at different variables, like how high a storm is in the atmosphere.
Every summer, Julie Bragg teaches kids how to swim at her pool, but almost 19 years ago, she was the one struggling to keep her head above water. A sheriff's deputy and chaplain came to her Macon home on July 3, 1999, with news that her two sons, Brax and Tate, died in a car accident on a Texas highway. In the weeks that followed, her emotions came in waves. At times, she could put on a smile, but there were many times she felt like she was drowning in a pool of sorrow.
We first introduced you to Nick Ramirez in 2016. The Northside High student suffers from narcolepsy, seizures, and short-term memory loss after a string of concussions playing middle school football. During what he describes as his ‘black-out episodes,’ Nick often wakes up unable to remember basic information like his name or his family members, but now he finds comfort knowing that he is never alone. For the past year, his service dog Teddy hasn't left his side.
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".
