ATHERTON, Mo. – The death of Jennifer Norris, 41, has sent shockwaves through her community. Norris was killed after driving her truck around a train barricade and into the path of an Amtrack train. “I don’t know if there is anybody that lives down here that can’t say they’ve not done it at least once, where you want to get home and you can’t sit there for an hour and stare at the guards while they are there, not going back up and you know nothing is coming,” Atherton resident Holly Cheatum said.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The stack of busted rims never stops growing and neither does the workload for local mechanics. "This was at a 40-mph impact, the guy said. He slid into the curb and couldn't stop," DLS Tire Center mechanic Jonathan Hampton said, showing off damaged rims in his shop. "This one is a Ford Ranger that he slid into a curb and damaged. This is a spare tire that somebody put on after they hit a pothole and they hit another one.
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Since 2007, Historic Downtown Overland Park has undergone some changes. City Councilman Paul Lyons and many others feel it has been much needed. "Ten years ago, downtown was in trouble," Lyons said. "We had a lot of empty store fronts. We just had a major fire on Santa Fe. The Farmer’s Market was in trouble, and we needed to do something to really turn that around."
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".
