He arrived right on time, just as he always did, carrying the worn camouflage briefcase he brought with him everywhere.Inside, he said, was his life. His Navy discharge papers and his complete medical history detailing the stroke that left him disabled, his checkbooks and the notepads he used for jotting down things he wouldn’t remember.There was a cashier’s check, withdrawn from a bank that morning.
The invaders are virtually indestructible, agile runners that can rise up overnight.Mow them down and they’ll resurrect, marching unchecked across backyard battlefields.Some Stafford County residents have spent years combating an enemy known as running bamboo. It creeps in from their neighbors’ properties and overruns their own. They cut it down and dig it up and spray it with pesticides.When that doesn’t work, they pay thousands of dollars to bring in a backhoe to eliminate it.
A burst pipe meant no water for the at-risk teenagers at Stafford County's Chaplin Group Home—on the coldest day yet of an unusually cold winter.They couldn't stay there like that. Donna Krauss, a board member on the Rappahannock Area Youth Services and Group Home Commission, got the call just after 11 a.m. on January 3, a day when the temperature dropped to zero degrees. In three days' time, it would fall to six below in Stafford.
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".
