Dozens of children reported feeling ill at a Bay Terraces school Thursday, and fumes from a nearby construction site may be to blame, officials said. Employees at Zamorano Fine Arts Academy called the fire department about 10:20 a.m. after a number of students said they didn’t feel good after smelling a bad odor during a recess for fifth graders, district spokeswoman Maureen Magee said. When fire crews arrived at the Casey Street school, 36 students were being monitored in the cafeteria.
The woman who was fatally struck by a vehicle Saturday while apparently trying to cross Interstate 8 was identified Monday as a San Diego State University student. Jasmine Madarang, 20, was hit near Waring Road about 8 p.m. She died before she could be taken to a hospital. The driver who struck her stopped and tried to flag down other vehicles to help after the crash, witnesses told officers.
Behind the closed door of a San Carlos condominium, a father and daughter were fatally shot — each in the head. A prosecutor said Monday that the two were ambushed and executed by Regina Renee Johnson, now on trial on murder charges, but a defense attorney said the two fell victim to a violent, family argument. Deputy District Attorney Nicole Rooney said Johnson first killed her 14-year-old daughter Aaliyah and then her husband, Reuben Johnson, on May 30, 2012.
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".
