ST. LOUIS - A citizen group that wants to clean up the West Lake Landfill prayed for a solution to what they claim could be a nuclear waste disaster. For years, 'Just Moms STL' has advocated moving the illegally dumped nuclear waste out of the community's backyard. They say a fire is growing under the buried waste, moving toward where the Environmental Protection Agency knows nuclear waste is sitting. The landfill is already considered a Superfund Site, so it's targeted to be cleaned up.
CAHOKIA, ILL. - Superintendent Art Ryan sat down with four parents of students at Cahokia Senior high school Friday. The parents’ main concern was why the school didn't tell them about guns on campus this week. A student was robbed at gunpoint by another student during football practice Wednesday afternoon, and a fight Thursday morning about the robbery caused Ryan to write a letter to parents explaining what happened. But some parents didn’t get the letter.
The New Athens Fire department says a captain who was shot at Casino Queen Sunday morning is going to make a full recovery. Larry Weber is a huge part of the community, and his neighbors have all rallied around him during his time in the hospital. “Everybody knows what everybody’s doing,” said New Athens Village Trustee Arlene Geppert. New Athens is a small town located along Route 13, and everyone knows everyone. “It’s very, very, very close-knit,” said Geppert.
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".
