VIDEOBonnie Hitts sits in her home day in and day out. She’s confined to her bed and suffers from chronic pain due to fibromyalgia. Hitts pays at least $160 a month for her medications, but her prescriptions cost even more than that. Senior Neighbors – a Kent County group that helps people older than 60 –pays for the rest. And because Hitts has to rely on others to pick up her prescriptions, she sticks to one pharmacy to make it easier. But what she didn’t know was costing her a lot of cash.
BOWNE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) –- Two former Grand Rapids police chiefs Friday visited the children’s camp they fought to keep open. Former Grand Rapids police chiefs Kevin Belk and Harry Dolan toured Camp O’Malley in Bowne Township to see the results of revitalization efforts that started a decade ago. The visit highlighted perhaps one of the most rewarding parts of the job for the Grand Rapids Police Department, as officers and K-9s met with underprivileged children at the camp.
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Jim Childress remembers the smallest of details about May 13, 1980. “We walked up to this window and that’s where we first saw it. We just saw the sky was black and it wasn’t just a little dark, it was nighttime,” Childress, who worked in what’s now the Comerica Building in downtown Kalamazoo, recalled. An F3 tornado was tearing toward downtown. “We ran outside this building and glass was still falling from it,” Childress described.
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".
