A Wave Muffler is set up in hopes of preventing damage and erosion (WFSB)Wave damage to sandy beaches in huge storms could be history, thanks to one man's patented "Wave Muffler.”Super Storm Sandy caused damage and erosion to CT beaches, but that storm spawned an idea on how to make big waves into little waves. He’s been a lifelong member of the Old Lyme Beach Club, where there is a plastic 30-inch industrial grade pipe anchored to the sand.
The scene of the shooting in North Stonington in April (WFSB)A member of a prominent Connecticut native American tribe is charged for the murder of his cousin, who he claimed was HIV positive and infecting others with aids. James Armstrong, 30, of New London remains behind bars on a $1.5 million bond. He was arraigned on the murder charge on Monday, days after detectives had to bring him back to Connecticut from Missouri.
As Irma churned over the state of Florida, a number of Connecticut natives contacted Eyewitness News and said they've been weathering the storm. They joined millions of people who sheltered in place. Robert Cushman from Rocky Hill said the area lost some trees where he was. "It was a really rough day here we prepped all week for this and I'm pretty confident our preparations were able to get through this in one piece," Cushman said.
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".
