- A faulty power strip powering Christmas lights is being blamed for a fire that caused $1 million in damage at Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery in Phoenix. Two sisters who live at the monastery escaped the flames -- one of them jumped into action to put the fire out. You can see just how intense the flames were. The sisters tried to salvage what they could, but unfortunately, there's not a whole lot left inside. Now they're rebuilding the structure which means so much to them.
- With the holidays right around the corner, some believe it would be nice to have a few extra bucks in their wallet. For some, money could be owed to them, without them even knowing about it. It is estimated that one in 10 Americans have some sort of unclaimed money floating out there. In Arizona, the Arizona Department of Revenue currently has $80 million that could belong to someone.
- To say that Gloria Hardy is happy about her new apartment would be an understatement. "It means a lot, I'm very grateful. I have a brand new stove and dishwasher," said Hardy. For years, Hardy found herself out on the streets. Never seeing a way out of homelessness until she was accepted by a program called 'A New Leaf.' Now, she has her very own apartment in Mesa.
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".
