(Aurora, Ind.) – Brutally cold wind chills are blowing across the tri-state Tuesday. Snowfall totals Monday ranged from 3.0 inches in Walton to 2.1 inches in Aurora. A day after snow covered the region, the deep freeze has set in. The National Weather Service says Tuesday’s high temperature will be only around 16 degrees, with below zero wind chills throughout the day. The frigid temperatures are preventing snow and ice from melting off of many area roads.
(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Human trafficking is one of the largest and fastest-growing criminal industries in the world. In the United States, statistics suggest 71 percent of labor trafficking victims entered the country on lawful visas. Eighty-three percent of sex trafficking victims are U.S. citizens. Children pulled into commercial sex are often as young as 12-years-old. Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill wants to crack down on human trafficking in his state.
(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Due to ice and snow, firefighters had trouble accessing a house fire in Lawrenceburg Monday evening. A vehicle reportedly caught fire outside a home on the 15500 block of Wilson Creek Road around 5:30 p.m. The flames spread to the nearby home. Firefighters had difficulty getting water tankers to the house fire because the trucks could not be driven up an icy hill leading to the home. It is unclear if anybody was injured in the fire.
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".
