Elements 2 in 1 Hand Warmer • Hand warmers can be challenging. The popular disposable chemical variety works but can’t be recycled and often lasts only 30 minutes. The traditional fuel-powered type can be hard to light and can smell. The Elements 2 in 1 Hand Warmer by Celestron ($31.97, celestron.com) is a rechargeable device (using a USB port) that provides up to 8 hours of heat on a single charge. It has the added bonus of serving as a charge port for portable devices.
Sandy • If you’re considering a career in law enforcement, Maj. Scott Stephenson wants you to know that police forces across Utah are hiring. Stephenson directs the state police academy in Sandy. On Wednesday, he told the Utah Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (POST) that the latest figures show there are 8,148 active peace officers in the state. Utah, at one point, had about 8,800 peace officers, Stephenson said.
Law enforcement in central and southern Utah are looking for two girls who police say were kidnapped by their father, who court records say is a “doomsday prepper” who belongs to a religious cult. The Iron County Sheriff’s Office on Monday raided a compound in that county and found two boys who also had been missing, said Spring City Police Chief Clarke Christensen. The chief, whose office is about 170 miles from where the raid happened, said searches were continuing for the girls.
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".
