ST. LOUIS, MO - There's a new beginning in one of St. Louis' old neighborhoods. "I think this project is a way to bring the neighborhood back," said Fred Kimbrough of a non-profit called Lutheran Housing Support. More than a dozen new homes have been built or are being built in an area north of downtown called College Hill. "The house that I live in now that we built and moved into in 1969 was my dad's dream," explained Teri Rose, a fifth-generation resident.
GODFREY, ILL. - At St. Louis Children's hospital, visiting hours have turned into days and sometimes weeks for the Almeter family. Four-year-old Kailey Almeter has been spending almost as much time here as the doctors and nurses. "I have to get shots," Kailey told us. "I have to get poked at the hospital." We agreed that it was no fun. On this day, Kailey is getting a scan of her brain. We already have a good picture of her heart. Kailey was the Almeter's first child.
ST. LOUIS - Urban League President Michael McMillan said he can point to several things that have taken place since the Ferguson protests that have been very positive, including Centene's $30 million building with 250 jobs, more diversity in government and on the police force and the Urban League's new community empowerment center. It's that kind of progress he believes we now need to bring to the rest of struggling communities.
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".
