It hasnâ€™t always been that way for the VCU graduate who spent years honing her skills as a television news reporter in Lynchburg. Described as a go getter, Lauren set her sights on one day landing a job back home in Norfolk, near her parents and family. â€œThat was like amazing. I was going to be reporting in my hometown. To me that was like the ‘I had arrived moment.’A dream that came true, but not without struggle and sacrifice. â€œI felt like I needed to be there seven days a week,â€?
RICHMOND, Va. -- Neighbors in an East End community say they're fed up with trash thrown about their neighborhood. The ironic part, one CBS 6 viewer tells Problem Solvers is they're dumping trash literally just a few feet away from the trash receptacle. It's becoming more than an eyesore. Donovan Thorne lives at The Villas of Oakwood. He can't get over the pile of more than 40 trash bags and other items. CBS 6 spotted two sofas, televisions and more, all sprawled out on the ground.
RICHMOND, Va. -- In the most unexpected place, visitors viewed a tribute to a man who spent years in law enforcement, helping others. A hand drawn portrait of Master Trooper Junius Walker was on display this year at the State Fair of Virginia. Â Walker was shot and killed on Interstate 85 when he stopped to help a disabled vehicle. The man behind the art is Fred White. The local artist had an encounter with Walker that stuck with White for years.
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".
