PETERSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — The Robert Bobb Group, hired to turn around failing city finances also wants to be hired to assess the progress of their plan. The Bobb Group is scheduled to leave at the end of the month, and the price tag for that assessment would be $50,000. But, the money would come from the state, not the city. Some residents are not so sure that rehiring the advisers is in the city’s best interest.
PETERSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — Police in Petersburg are still looking for the suspect who they say shot five people Sunday night. Police are trying to determine whether a person driving a vehicle that matched the description in Chesterfield is the person responsible, as one of the victims fights for his life in the hospital. The other four victims are expected to be o.k. But police are asking the public’s help in connecting all the dots to put the person who is responsible behind bars.
RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The show of force by police is being credited with keeping things calm at Saturday’s protests on Monument Avenue in Richmond. Richmond police spent more than a month preparing and residents say that they are thankful for their efforts. Roads in the area were barricaded with fencing and dump trucks. Anyone who came to protest today near the Lee Monument knew police meant business. “I hope it remains peaceful, it looks pretty peaceful,” one resident said.
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".
