CHETUMAL, Mexico -- Prosecutors in Mexico are blaming a bus driver for causing the crash that killed 12 people Tuesday, including eight American tourists. Seven other Americans were hurt. Now, Mexican prosecutors say skid marks on the narrow highway may indicate the tour bus was speeding, causing a crash so violent it flipped the bus on its side. Passengers were tossed across the road and into a grassy shoulder. Red Cross responder Marcelino Perez says it's the worst he's ever seen.
MIDLAND CITY, Ala. -- Voters in Alabama go to the polls Tuesday in the most closely watched U.S. Senate race in recent memory. "This race is about Alabama. We've made it clear, our race is about everyone in the state regardless about who they are," Democrat Doug Jones recently told reporters. The final push for Jones includes a small army of volunteers who said they knocked on 80,000 doors this past weekend trying to get out the vote.
MOBILE, Ala. -- Alabama's special election is Tuesday. It's a heated battle for the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions -- and it could change the balance of the U.S. Senate, where Republicans hold a slim majority. Barbara Brewster and her husband Henry spent part of their Saturday canvassing this Mobile, Alabama, neighborhood for Doug Jones. They believe turnout -- especially among African-American voters -- could be the key to giving the Democrat a chance of winning Tuesday.
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".
