It has been a tough school year in Branson to say the least. The district has had three fatal car crashes to deal with. Five students were killed in those crashes, and one has moderate injuries. Three of the students who died were supposed to be graduating seniors this school year. "I had this perfect idea of how my senior year would go, and this is definitely not part of it," said senior class president Savannah Sinclair.
Sadly it happens all too often, and in most cases, children never report their sexual abuse. The Child Advocacy Center saw 991 kids in 2017, specifically for sexual abuse. Here's what experts want every parent to know. "The best way for the parent to prevent or reduce the likelihood that their child is going to be abused is to talk to their child, and that talk should actually occur before the child turns 8," said Linda Saturno with the Child Advocacy Center.
STRAFFORD, Mo. -- A massive house caught fire early Saturday morning in Strafford. It started around 5:00a.m. Several fire departments are still on-scene. We're told this was a vacant house. It was fully engulfed by the time crews arrived. Fighting the flames was hindered by the lack of a fire hydrant in the area. Our reporter could smell the smoke for several miles away from the scene. No word yet on any injuries.
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".
