A 59-year-old Belmont woman was arrested by police in Arlington this week after she failed to stop her bike at a stop sign along the Minuteman Bikeway and was chased by a bike-mounted officer. She said she ignored the officer as a kind of protest. Karen Cady-Pereira, who says charges were later dropped, said she just wanted to get home Monday night when she slowed her bike at the Lake Street intersection before deciding to cruise right through.
I wanted to drink 25 glasses of water in a single day. I wanted to be like Tom Brady. But after I called a few experts this week and asked what might happen if I sat at my desk for an entire eight-hour shift and guzzled 200 ounces of water as I scoured the Internet for the day’s hottest cat stories, they advised against it. “Twenty-five ... is a lot. Very much a lot,” said Alicia Romano, a clinical registered dietician at the Frances Stern Nutrition Center at Tufts Medical Center.
It looks like at least one robot won’t be taking a human’s job, after all — at least for now. After months of patrolling the Prudential Center, a security robot was escorted from the property by two human security officers on Tuesday. The Prudential Center shared a picture on Twitter of the employees, their hands placed gently on the back of the Knightscope K5, an egg-shaped machine equipped with real-time monitoring and detection technology, as they showed it the door.
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".
