A video has emerged of three prisoners escaping from a jail in California. Using a mobile phone smuggled into the prison, Hoseein Nayer, Jonathan Tieu and Tien Duong documented their escape from a maximum security wing of the Orange County Jail in January 2016. Duong turned himself into authorities a week later, while Tieu and Nayeri were caught 400 miles away in San Francisco eight days after the escape. Video of the escape has been handed to US media by a lawyer involved in the case.
A Los Angeles man has been arrested for arranging the smuggling of three highly-venomous king cobra snakes into the United States - hidden inside potato crisp tubes. Rodrigo Franco, 34, was charged after a parcel from Hong Kong was intercepted by US Customs and Border Protection agents in March containing the two-foot-long snakes concealed inside the packaging.
Firefighters were today tackling huge blazes which ripped through 1,400 hectares of forest and woodlands in the south of France and the island of Corsica. The biggest fire was in the village of La Bastidonne, in the Vaucluse region, where fires, intensified by strong winds, consumed some 600 hectares of forest. About 100 residences were evacuated in the village of Mirabeau and a dozen horses in a stable were moved to safer ground.
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".
