- A Leesburg resident says he is concerned after KKK fliers were found on his doorstep late Friday night. The fliers were found in a plastic baggy along with a piece of candy in a quiet Leesburg neighborhood. "I couldn't even explain what I felt. You know, I was very disappointed. And when I begin to read through it, it was just -- it was frustrating," says Leesburg resident Sean Stephens, who received the fliers.
- Medicaid recipients across the District may want to double check their health insurance benefits. FOX 5 has received a tip saying health insurance was mistakenly canceled for many Medicaid participants. The mayor's office said it is trying to determine if this problem is widespread or if it is an isolated incident impacting a few people. Northeast D.C. resident George Lavoie said he went to schedule a doctor's appointment and was informed his health insurance was canceled.
- Two men with dementia who recently went missing in the D.C. area were found dead this week. Although their cases are unrelated, the circumstances surrounding their disappearances have ignited new concerns about what to do when someone encounters a wandering person with a mental illness. In Maryland, 65-year-old Daniel DeHaven reportedly wandered away from his wife at a Costco parking lot in Beltsville last week. On Tuesday, his body was found in a wooded area near BWI Airport.
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".
