The ice and snow storm that blanketed the South is now blamed for at least five deaths. The storm is making travel dangerous, if not impossible. More than 1,500 flights have been cancelled and tens of thousands of homes and businesses have lost power. From Texas to the Carolinas, there were hundreds of car crashes as people tried to navigate the treacherous roads.
NEW YORK -- The storm that hit the Northeast last week is long gone, but John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York still hasn't recovered, with more flights delayed Monday. Terminal 4 at JFK was more like a scavenger hunt, as weary flyers searched through a mountain of unclaimed luggage. "I looked through hundreds of bags and they weren't there and finally I found out they were in another section," one traveler told CBS News. Last Thursday's storm kicked off a chain reaction of issues.
NEW YORK -- Thousands of air travelers were out of luck Thursday as snow and wind at major transit hubs forced more than 4,000 flights to be canceled. The massive winter storm virtually shut down New York's airports, creating long lines of frustrated flyers and leaving others to sleep at Newark Liberty International Airport. "We're delayed and we're not sure if we're going to be flying out of here anytime soon," said Hazel Blackmon, one flier trying to get to Georgia.
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".
