DUXBURY, Mass. - South Shore towns and cities were severely impacted by the strong winds, high tides and heavy rain last Friday. Now, some towns are underwater after a second nor'easter made landfall overnight into Thursday. Crews in Duxbury are working against the clock to clear streets and sidewalks before temperatures dip below freezing. Emergency officials are using pumps in an effort to get water out of one neighborhood that's been under feet of water for close to a week.
A town like Norwood used to receive two or three mental health calls in a month. Now, they can average two a day. This jump in mental health issues is forcing local departments to train in new ways to respond. "Officers have become social workers," Deputy Chief Peter Kelly of Norwood told Boston 25 News. Boston 25 News Reporter Robert Goulston was allowed into a crisis intervention training class in Norfolk County, where the officers are coping with voices in their head.
BOSTON - Getting an Uber or ordering a Lyft. It's now one of the more popular ways to get around Boston, but take a closer look at what all those ride shares are doing to congestion. Boston roads have never been tighter and now the push to get people to ride share has people wondering if that’s become too much. “You’re seeing Lyft and Uber on every corner. It’s not about how many you are seeing, it’s about when you are seeing them,” said Lawrence Graham of Boston.
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".
