Two new officers are joining the NOPD all the way from Europe. But, first they're going through weeks of rigorous training. They're learning how to save lives by detecting weapons and explosives. And, in our special report "K-9 Communication," you may be surprised to learn they only understand Dutch. There's Jo. "Jo, he's more fast-paced," said NOPD Canine Trainer Harold Chambliss. And, his partner, Carlos. "Carlos is more methodical, methodical type of dog, he likes to take his time."
A NOPD sergeant has been demoted, accused of sexually harassing female employees. According to police records, Sgt. Rhett Charles made sexually explicit comments to the women, and there was even an audio recording of one of those conversations. According to his personnel file, Charles asked a female employee, "How fat is your p***y?" On another occasion he allegedly said to a different female employee, "If I wasn't your supervisor, I'll like to break your back," referencing a sex act.
The Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers not to use a popular botanical product. It's called kratom, and the FDA says it can be deadly. You can find it at smoke shops or even gas stations. But the FDA issued a public health advisory this week warning against kratom. According to its website, the "FDA is concerned that kratom, which affects the same opioid brain receptors as morphine, appears to have properties that expose users to the risks of addiction, abuse and dependence."
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".
