The sound of the iconic Huey helicopter is unmistakable to a Vietnam veteran. The rhythmic thumping of the rotors is hypnotic and often takes vets back in time to when they served during the Vietnam War. "In Vietnam, almost every veteran has a story to tell about a Huey," said Jim Haga, president of Liberty War Birds, a nonprofit based in the Lititz, PA. The Vietnam veteran believes reuniting his fellow vets with the Huey could be cathartic.
For years, nearly 100 Wilmington businesses and nonprofits had their trash picked up for free, costing the city hundreds of thousands of dollars. Following an internal review of approximately 20,000 trash and recycling collection accounts, city leaders discovered at least 97 of those businesses are commercial accounts. According to the Wilmington City Code, all commercial accounts, including nonprofits, are required to contract with a private hauler.
Two animal shelters in Delaware are making room for dogs from Texas, where shelters are burdened with an increased intake of dogs after Hurricane Harvey. Faithful Friends Animal Society (FFAS) and Delaware Humane Association (DHA) welcomed about 20 dogs from a Dallas-area shelter this morning. Volunteers from Faithful Friends left Wilmington yesterday morning and picked up the mostly large dogs in Knoxville, Tenn. Folks from Rockwall Pets drove the dogs from Dallas to the meeting point.
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".
