A popular pet-sitting service is back in the doghouse after one of its handlers lost a Long Island family’s beloved beagle-Labrador mix. It’s the second time in two years that a New York boarder or walker hired through Wag! has misplaced a dog. The first time, Duckie, a Brooklyn Chihuahua, was missing for a week, got hit by a car and died. Now, Mary Ellen Humphrey of Wantagh wants to know where her dog Buddy is, and why Wag! isn’t doing more to find him.
The Kardashians can breathe a sigh of relief. The woman who allegedly held two Kardashian store employees at gunpoint Thursday, threatened death to the famous family and returned with a machete has been arrested on felony assault and criminal threats charges, police said. Suspect Maricia Medrano, 35, was booked late Thursday night after investigators served a search warrant at her southern California residence, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.
App-based dog walking service Wag has added a high-tech flank to the search for a dog lost by one of its boarders on Long Island. A Wag spokeswoman said the company — billed as Uber for dogs — began using drones Friday to try and find Buddy, the Long Island Labrador-Beagle mix lost this week. "We've got drones up. We've got people going door to door, handing out fliers," the spokeswoman told the Daily News.
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".
