ROSEVILLE -- Just steps away from where children play, and up one flight of stairs, Roseville police say three prostitutes were servicing johns out of their luxury apartment at the Terraces at Highland Reserve. "My son is 5 and I've got two girls, so that makes me a little leery, something like that happening so close to home," said neighbor Angela Van Diest. Van Diest lives just to the left and one floor down from the suspected scene of the crime, what investigators call a house of ill fame.
VACAVILLE -- "This person will be brought to justice, if that's the last breath in my body." Fast forward almost three years from when Carmen Ward said those words at a vigil after Demetrious Ward was murdered and she and the rest of her family are just a wake-up away from hearing closing arguments in the case against the gunman suspected of taking his life. What has this time without him been like? "Gave me a big hole. It's actually made me a little more angry, just a little angry.
FAIRFIELD -- Holding a family photo, Steve Cobb can hardly believe it's now the only way he'll be able to hold his baby sister Mary Douglas and that the person police say took her life at a Fairfield home is a sister to them both. "Everything was OK till yesterday. I don't know what might have snapped in her head or transpired, but she's been dealing with mental issues for a long time," said Cobb.
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".
