TUCSON — More than 24 hours after an earthquake leveled buildings and killed hundreds of people in Mexico City, the phones at a Mexican government call center here continued to ring non-stop. Most callers on Wednesday wanted to know two things: Can you help me reach my family in Mexico? And how can I help? Tucson's Mexican Consulate houses the Center for Information and Aid to Migrants (CIAM), a hotline for the millions of Mexicans living in the United States.
NACO, Arizona – While emergency crews rushed in July to contain a sizable leak of raw sewage from Mexico into the Santa Cruz River near Nogales, a similar leak on the border has sent hundreds of gallons of wastewater north for months. That flow, from Naco, Sonora, to its sister town of Naco, Arizona, continues. Local officials called on Rep. Martha McSally on Monday and an international commission to help end what's been an ongoing, well-known problem for nearly four decades.
Their desert camo is the same color as the surrounding scrub. Their packs have more combat gear and lots of water. Their guns are AR-15s. They’re tracking fresh footprints — evidence, they think, of drug smugglers on the move. There’s no border wall or fence here. Just barbed wire. They watch the terrain for signs of trouble. They’re also being watched. They’re sure of it. The men are not federal agents. They’re not Border Patrol; they’re not DEA; and they’re not in the military.
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".
