In the wake of a UMass student being hit by a car just before sunset on Friday, police on-campus are asking those who drive on certain streets to be aware of the issues caused by solar glare. Eastman Lane is a busy spot on UMass Amherst's campus as students walk to and from residence halls, but this weekend, it became the scene of a serious crash:This weekend, Silas Watkins, a 20 year old student, was hit while crossing the street. He was rushed to Baystate Medical Center with critical injuries.
Time is running out for Springfield resident Lucio Perez, the father of three children born in this country, who came to the U.S. illegally two decades ago. Perez doesn't have a criminal record, but does have an order of deportation - one that if enforced would put him on a plane to Guatemala, the country he fled years ago. It's just under 24 hours before Perez will be forced to board a plane back to Guatemala.
Over a dozen people were arrested in Springfield this morning as they protested the deportation of a Springfield man. Demonstrators were calling for ICE to allow Lucio Perez who is facing deportation to Guatemala in three days. In a press release sent to Western Mass News, Perez is a landscaper working throughout Massachusetts and northern Connecticut, has a clean criminal record, and had a temporary work authorization until July.
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".
