ANTELOPE -- Families around the country spent Thursday getting together to celebrate Thanksgiving, but for loved ones existing in the wake of homicide, something will always be missing on days like this. Loved ones of Jessica Chavez gathered in Antelope to keep her memory alive a year after her death. "She was a teacher in the cosmetic industry. She touched a lot of people's lives through that, touched my life, she touched a lot of her friend's lives.
MODESTO -- Those who loved Cody Lea can't believe they're lighting candles to honor a life that just reached its 21st year last month. The red ones are there because red was his favorite color. "He was a great kid. He would always, he would always go the extra mile for you, that's for sure, for his friends and his family," said his best friend Donnie Galvan. Galvan lives just a few blocks away from where a bullet took Lea's life Tuesday night in Modesto.
SACRAMENTO -- The city of Sacramento is committed to a new way of weeding out illegal marijuana operations within city limits. The council has granted a police department request for $850,000 for a dedicated pot enforcement team of three sergeants and 12 officers. "I'm leaving it up there, she made it, my other daughter did," giggled Naomi Smith. A big smile comes easy for Smith as she talks about knickknacks around the house she's called home for 44 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".
