- A local Cal State campus is operating without much of its drinking water after the water was found to be contaminated and unsafe. In an interesting twist...it was some of the chemistry students at the school who first uncovered the water contamination. Elaine Bernal collected water from 10 campus drinking fountains. Her Chemistry 100 students used a kit to test the water samples. She discovered her sample tested positive for lead.
- A man led police Friday on a chase in a stolen car from Los Angeles to Alhambra, where he ran onto the campus of Mark Keppel High School and was arrested. Los Angeles Police Department officers began chasing the Honda in their jurisdiction late this morning. The driver sped from police on surface streets, at times going an estimated 75 mph and nudging other vehicles out of the way at intersections. About 12:15 p.m., the man drove onto the eastbound San Bernardino (10) Freeway.
- FOX 11 News has confirmed that the boy is a student at Deanza Middle School in Ontario. He was still in custody as students were let out for the day. On Wednesday, the 13-year old put on a scary costume - but scarier than the mask, he was also carrying a semi-automatic gun. He found an unlocked door and entered the classroom. Students initially didn't believe the gun was real. The boy never fired the gun and then suddenly left the campus before Ontario Police arrived.
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".
