Pipes and bongs, made out of simple household items. Local authorities say many kids experimenting with drugs are hiding them in plain sight. Would you know where to look? "Look at everything. And pretty much question everything," said Lieutenant Brad Smith with the Cape Girardeau Police Department. I met Smith and Task Force Officer Mike Alford in the Cape P.D. evidence room. Alford said teens are turning to the same kind of false containers drug dealers used to try and fool police in the past.
When we cover a murder case, we often hold back from showing certain video clips or photographs out of respect to you the viewer, and the victims' family. But, in this age of 24-hour, online, instant gratification, that standard is often thrown out the window. Now, authorities across Missouri are trying to do something about it. "That's another homicide," Cape Girardeau County Coroner John Clifton tells me as he slides a photocopied image across the table we're seated at to show me.
Eleven days ago, two inmates did something that's never happened before - they broke out of the Pemiscot County Jail. "I've been sheriff 20 years, never had an escape," Sheriff Tommy Greenwell said. "And it was a total shock to me." October 26, I spent time with Greenwell to find out how they pulled it off. "This is the cell they were housed in," said the sheriff. "They were in this cell by themselves."
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".
