Delaware Gov. John Carney has named Claire DeMatteis as his special assistant at the Delaware Dept. of Correction. DeMatteis is charged with reforming management practices and training at the prisons. She'll also work to do a "cultural turnaround" behind bars, according to a statement from Gov. Carney's office. "Claire is tough, she is independent-minded, and she has the judgement and credibility necessary to work alongside [DOC] Commissioner [Perry] Phelps and help us make real change," Carney said.
In a time of deep political division, one man is on a mission to bring people together, one hug or high five at a time. Dave Sylvester hopes to bring America together. He goes by "Big Dave," a name that matches both his stature and his personality. Starting with his first stop Monday morning at the Governor's Cafe in Dover, Sylvester will visit 48 states through September, encouraging people he meets to find areas of unity with each other with the the slap of a high five or a big bear hug.
Several buildings were damaged at Delaware Electric Cooperative headquarters in Greenwood as a strong line of storms moving through Delaware Monday night. The storm knocked out power to about 2,000 homes in southern Delaware Monday night as heavy rain and heavy winds blew through the region. The storm also caused heavy damage to a building used to store electrical equipment at the Co-op headquarters. Two construction trailers were knocked over. Several trees were blown down along with a large fence.
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".
