EVERETT, MA (WHDH) - It’s a construction zone filled with steel and concrete right now, but in less than two years, this will be the center piece of the new Wynn Boston Harbor resort. 7’s Kris Anderson toured the massive development. “We are standing actually on the main casino floor,” said Bob DeSalvio, the President of Wynn Boston Harbor who will run the new $2.4 billion resort. DeSalvio put on his hard hat to give 7News an exclusive look inside.
LAS VEGAS (WHDH) — A World War II veteran living in Las Vegas acheived a milestone Wednesday that he never thought would happen — he officially graduated high school. Edward Hall, 94, never finished high school and admits he enlisted to “get away from it all.” He joined the Army and survived the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. When he was 22, he came back home and said he tried to finish high school but was told he could not.
MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) — A group of New England divers found a ship off the coast of New Hampshire that sank during the 1940s and now the team is sharing details about their discovery. The S.S. William H. Machen was found this past summer about 300 feet below the surface, lying on its side. The ship sank in July 1942 after it collided with a cargo freighter. Since it happened during World War II, the ship was largely forgotten. The team said the ship was found in pretty good condition.
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".
