VIRGINIA BEACHWhile driving on Interstate 64 between Richmond and Williamsburg last year, Del. Mike Mullin had to swerve to avoid hitting a pile of snow and ice that had fallen off a vehicle in front of him.“It could’ve been a really serious accident,” said the Newport News delegate.Clearing snow off cars before driving is recommended in Virginia’s driving manual.
VIRGINIA BEACHSame concerns, different Oceanfront development proposal.In a familiar chorus of opposition, a dozen residents spoke out Tuesday against a public-private partnership that would redevelop the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier at 15th Street with $25 million from the city’s tourism fund.The city – which would build and own the new pier – shouldn’t extend “corporate welfare” to developers by subsidizing projects, they told council members.
VIRGINIA BEACHIt’s been almost two weeks since Jared Koestler and most of his neighbors could shower in their homes.The water pressure has been too low to shower or wash dishes in the County View Mobile Court near Town Center since a wave of cold weather hit Hampton Roads.So even though snow is melting and temperatures are climbing, water service won't be back to normal in the neighborhood until private water lines are repaired.Some of County View's water mains are frozen or have burst,...
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".
