Armand J. Jolly stood on the bow of the USS Emmons, looking for Japanese kamikaze airplanes. He and the rest of the 300 sailors on the minesweeper had survived naval battles in the Atlantic and Pacific, and they could tell the war was nearing an end. That afternoon — April 6, 1945 — off shore from Okinawa, Jolly spotted an enemy plane. Then dozens more. The first planes rocked a nearby destroyer.
At least eight double-decker box cars in a long freight train toppled shortly before 11:30 a.m. Wednesday when they struck a bridge spanning the tracks on Main Street in Buffalo, but no one was injured. Buffalo police said the Canadian Pacific Railway train that derailed on CSX tracks between Greenfield Street and Rodney Avenue did not threaten public safety. The box cars were empty, said Peter Lotocki, Buffalo Fire Department division chief.
The Buffalo Police Department was one of only three of the nation’s 100 largest departments that went without a fatal shooting by police from the start of 2013 through 2016, according to Mapping Police Violence, an activist website that collects data on police killings nationwide. The other two were the suburban communities of Irvine, Calif., and Plano, Texas.
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".
