SALEM, NH (CBS) – It started with the generosity of a child and it’s going to help hundreds of kids in hurricane ravaged Texas. When Hurricane Harvey tore through Houston, it didn’t spare schools or libraries. So a 6-year-old from Salem, New Hampshire decided to help, with books. First grader Brooklyn Murray saw what happened in Texas. “It was so bad and people lost a lot of stuff,” she says. She wanted to help.
WORCESTER (CBS) – It may be the last of its kind. After 235 years, Elwood Adams Hardware on Main Street in Worcester is closing. The store opened in 1782. The Revolutionary War wasn’t over yet. After just a handful of owners, this independent hardware store just can’t compete, and that’s going to be a big loss for its longtime customers and employees. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Elwood Adams Hardware is an institution. “They had everything you want,” says customer Rod White.
TAUNTON (CBS) – The mother of a man killed in a hit and run crash in Taunton says justice has not been served. One of the people who was in that car has been sentenced to serve one year in prison. The victim’s mother says that’s nothing but a slap on the wrist. “I was very angry and I’m very resentful of the judge, and I guess I’ll always feel that way. I think it’s another miscarriage of justice,” says Caryn Alfano.
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".
