KUSA - On a warm weekend in January, it’s not unusual to see street musicians post up on street corners along the 16th Street Mall. On Sunday, one performer stood out from the rest. “I’ve been playing since I was 4 years old,” Amara Ilustre said while holding her violin.
KUSA - Three days into the New Year, there’s already been at least one deadly crash in Colorado. The driver of an SUV was killed New Year’s Day in Aurora after crashing into a brick wall and tree. It was likely the first fatality of the year on Colorado’s roadways. Sadly, we know there will be more in 2018. The Colorado Department of Transportation says traffic fatalities are up about 24 percent over the last three years. There were 615 traffic deaths in 2017.
KUSA - You probably heard it from mom first: When it’s cold outside, bundle up. “I definitely bundle up now,” Alec Grimes said with a smile. If anyone understands the lesson of layers, it’s Grimes. “I got frostbite a year ago just walking through the snow one cold night,” he said. “Wearing just thin canvas shoes, just kind of absorbed on my feet. Just got frozen from there.”Grimes was in Fort Collins visiting his brother last year. Temperatures outside dipped to 14 below zero.
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".
