Tate McCullough won’t ever forget the day he saw 20-foot flames burning along both sides of Idaho Highway 21 — a veritable tunnel of fire. His business, Hilltop Station restaurant and grocery, was in the path of what became a 4,300-acre fire that destroyed three ranch outbuildings and some sheds at the Boise River Wildlife Management Area office. Boiseans could see the giant plume from the fire on July 19, 2016. “It burned right by us,” McCullough said.
A fire that burned about 30 acres north of Eagle last Saturday was intentionally set, according to Ada County Sheriff’s officials. Investigators found evidence the fire was lit in the road and then gasoline was used to carry it into the dry hillside. They don’t have any suspects but they’re asking for the public’s help in locating a man who was seen recording the early-morning fire, which burned east of North Willow Creek Road near Chantry Way.
Lance Pekus may be the best athlete you’ve never heard of. But the strapping, young Idaho cowboy, who runs cattle at his father-in-law’s ranch in Salmon and works seasonally for the U.S. Forest Service, is making a name for himself on the TV sports competition “American Ninja Warrior.” Now in his sixth season on the show, Pekus is known as the “Cowboy Ninja.” His sexy signature look highlights his brawny physique: Shirtless, jeans and black cowboy hat.
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".
