BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. -- A massive wall of flames towering over a fire ladder two stories high was what Jason Conley saw Wednesday night in Blytheville. He watched as a thrift store and apartment building across from the city's main fire station burned for hours. "They had the boom extended all the way out and it was about that tall. I thought it was gonna catch that boy on fire, it was up so high," said Conley. About 27 firefighters battled the flames in frigid conditions for most of the night.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Maya Sesson says the heat in her apartment hasn't worked since the week before Thanksgiving, so she's resorted to turning on her stove. "I have to burn my stove to stay warm or go over to a friend's house or a family member's house," said Sesson. Sesson said it was management at the Bent Tree Apartments that recommended she use her stove for heat. "Then when I called they said they had so many work order forms for the heat that I have to wait my turn to get it fixed," she said.
DESOTO COUNTY, Miss. — Salt and sand trucks stood at the ready throughout DeSoto County Monday afternoon, but the county’s road department has no plans to pre-treat roads ahead of Monday night’s forecast snowfall. Interstate 55 and other state-controlled highways, however, have been pre-treated. A spokesman for the Mississippi Department Transportation confirmed as much to WREG late Monday after another MDot representative told WREG earlier in the day that the agency had no plans to pre-treat.
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".
