PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — You’ve heard of a breathalyzer, but what about a textalyzer? The device, which was created to detect smartphone activity, resembles an iPad and plugs directly into your smartphone. It could soon help law enforcement determine distracted driving, after an accident. New Jersey is among a handful of states considering the high-tech tool and this week, Chicago could become the first city to pass legislation.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — When Hawaii’s emergency management mistakenly sent out a missile alert Saturday, panic ensued. From children climbing into manholes to families huddling in bunkers, for forty minutes, there was widespread mayhem, until the state sent a second alert, confirming it was a false alarm. “I think it’s very human to be terrified in a situation where you don’t have a plan,” said Eric Y. of University City. The governor has since apologized, assuring residents it won’t happen again.
LEONIA, N.J. (CBS) — A small town in New Jersey is making waves by restricting and fining Waze and other navigation-app users who drive through the town as a shortcut. Taking a back way to avoid a big mess may sound like a good idea. But, what if your street became the shortcut? “I probably wouldn’t like it too much,” said Robert Cart of Collingswood, New Jersey. “I’ve had that experience and it was extremely annoying,” added Denise Stuart of Haddonfield.
@KentBrockman13 Not a huge fan of the results, myself. But, I was assigned the story and did include the name of the company that performed the survey. I don’t have all the answers, but one thing’s for sure — I can always count on you to tell me how ya feel! Lol enjoy your night.
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".
