Nearly 70 years after a man disappeared while serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, his family is finally getting some long-awaited answers. Army Cpl. Clarence R. Skates, also known as Sonny, was just 17-year-old when he joined the Army. At 18, he was on the front lines for the Korean War. Skates was reported missing on Nov. 30, 1950, after his unit was overrun by the Chinese People's Volunteer Forces (CPVF), according to the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).
Police are cautioning pedestrians against "distracted walking," which is a problem, they say, among teenagers, young adults and just about anyone with a cell phone. Thursday, NBC 7 set up a camera at a busy Rancho Penasquitos intersection next to Mount Carmel High School to see if students walking to school were using their phones. The video showed student after student crossed the street with their eyes glued to their phone--many texting rather than looking up at the cars around them.
SF State’s women’s volleyball team started off day one of the 2017 West Region Showcase with a loss in their tournament opener against Biola University. “There were a lot of errors,” said Matt Hoffman, head coach of the team. “We didn’t play a clean game of volleyball out there; we didn’t execute our scouting report.”Even though Hoffman said the team didn’t play the game they planned, the first set was a 22-25 set loss and the Gators won the second set in thrilling fashion at 26-24.
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".
