An in-depth look at Chesapeake Crossing resident complaints revealed issues that landed property management in violation of city rules before a fire that killed three people. At issue in some of the inspection reports we obtained from the City of Chesapeake are problems with the elevators at Chesapeake Crossing. Most recently, we found two notices of violation and the timing of the upcoming re-inspection, might frustrate some people.
We are taking a deeper look into the history of the Chesapeake Crossing Apartments, where a large fire left three dead, several injured and more than one hundred people displaced. 13News Now checked with the fire department to see if the buildings had any violations that could have played a role in this fire. The biggest finding of our investigation might surprise people. We dug through reports put together after fire department inspections and re-inspections.
PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WVEC) -- A 13News Now investigation uncovered one of the candidates vying to lead the Portsmouth department that secures the courthouse, runs the jail and serves civil debt warrants has a troubled financial history. “There's money out there to combat the issues that we're having in Portsmouth,” Michael A. Moore, who is running to be the next Portsmouth Sheriff told us. Money is why we asked Moore, who is the democratic candidate for sheriff, for an interview.
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".
