A Hawaii Kai man nearly lost his life after suffering a heart attack during Saturday's missile alert false alarm, according to his girlfriend. James Sean Shields, 51, starting throwing up at Sandy Beach a few minutes after his emotional goodbyes to his children over the phone. "He called his daughter and said, 'I love you' and did the same thing with his hanai son," said his girlfriend Brenda Reichel.
The state's emergency management agency will be meeting with broadcasters to improve communication after the missile alert mistake. After the state accidentally sent out the warning on Saturday morning, radio stations were flooded with phone calls from anxious listeners. KSSK is designated as a primary alert station since it has 24-hour staffing and a generator. "People are calling in asking me, 'Is this for real?' And I tell them I don't know.
With the chance of a huge north-northwest swell rolling in this weekend, even more of the oceanfront property could soon slip away. Nine condominium complexes along the Kahana Bay coastline are in imminent danger from the extreme erosion. One property that is particularly vulnerable is the Sands of Kahana. "We lost huge amounts of shoreline very, very early on in the winter season," said Wayne Cober, vice president of Soleil Management, the condo's management company.
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".
