The Boston Globe this week completes a move to new downtown headquarters, a practical and symbolic milestone in the ongoing evolution of an enterprise remaking itself for the digital era. The Globe is leaving its antiquated building on Morrissey Boulevard, a red brick icon it first occupied in 1958, for two floors of a gleaming, contemporary office space at the corner of Congress and State streets.
PAWTUCKET, R.I. — The sounds of a professional baseball game — the pop of a 93-m.p.h. fastball into the catcher’s mitt, the sizzle of a groundball ripped through the infield grass — are surprisingly loud with no noisy fans around. The Pawtucket Red Sox, the Boston Red Sox’s top minor league team, played recently before what looked to be a couple hundred people at its longtime home park, McCoy Stadium.
Under the law, words can kill. In convicting 20-year-old Michelle Carter of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging her boyfriend to commit suicide, Judge Lawrence Moniz cited what Carter told Conrad Roy III on the phone at the critical moment, after he had stepped out of a truck filling with deadly carbon monoxide:And the judge cited the words she did not say. She did not tell him to step out and save himself. She did not tell the police that a teenager was dying. She did not tell Roy’s family.
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".
