LOWELL -- A 20-year-old Lowell man who was accused of shooting an off-duty employee of the Middlesex Sheriff's Office missed the birth of his first child as he was held without bail in connection with charges that were dropped on Wednesday. And an attorney who represented Tristan Morales, of 752 Merrimack St., is critical of prosecutors who would not agree to let Morales be released sooner even though it appeared the case against him was troubled.
LOWELL -- A pair of state troopers who saved the life of a distraught 24-year-old man when they used a state police helicopter to pull him from the icy waters of the Merrimack River earlier this month were honored by Gov. Charlie Baker. Trooper John Hazelrigg, who lives in North Central Massachusetts and piloted the Air4 helicopter, and Trooper Russ Phippen, who lives in the Merrimack Valley and grabbed the man out of the river, were both called to the Governor's Beacon Hill offices Wednesday.
CHELMSFORD -- Police say they struggled to stop a 29-year-old Lawrence man who put several baggies full of suspected heroin into his mouth when he saw police approaching him with questions about a drug deal at Walmart. Officers eventually got Juan Carlos Marinez-Santana to spit out the bags of suspected heroin, which weighed about 40 grams in total, according to a press release. A further investigation also turned up about 23 grams of suspected cocaine in Marinez-Santana's vehicle, police 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 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".
