NORMAN, Okla. – Stephen Starling said he was in 4th grade back in 1974 when we had a partial eclipse. He said his class made shadow boxes for viewing it but he became frustrated when he couldn’t see anything and looked straight at the sun. Starling said, shortly after that, his vision became blurred both near and far and he eventually had to get glasses when he had perfect vision before.
GUTHRIE, Okla. – A Guthrie man is facing several charges including rape, kidnapping and domestic assault after officials say he attacked his wife and held her against her will. According to court documents, the wife was driving her husband to work when they got into an argument. He allegedly stopped the car, duct taped her hands and beat her; then proceeded to drive down back roads as far as Stillwater.
OKLAHOMA CITY – The family of a man arrested for trying to blow up the BancFirst building in downtown Oklahoma City said he is not a criminal but a mentally ill young man. Jerry Varnell, 23, was arrested over the weekend after an undercover agent, who had been working with him for months, said he tried to detonate a bomb to blow up the building. The FBI said they thwarted what could have been a major disaster. Varnell’s family, though, said they took advantage of a mentally ill person.
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".
