PETERSBURG, Va. -- U.S. Postal Service officials are investigating after tubs of mail were found in a dumpster at a Petersburg apartment complex Friday. Natasha Lee and others living at Tanglewood Apartments were relieved to see a large U.S. Postal Service van pull up near the dumpster around 9 a.m. Friday. But instead of a uniformed postal worker getting out, two armed, plain clothes agents began sifting and removing mail from the dumpster.
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, Va. -- As school districts across the nation review security policies in the wake of the deadly shooting at a Florida high school on Valentine's Day, one Central Virginia district has a system inside schools designed to save lives during a shooting. When a shooting happens inside a school, time is a crucial factor in reducing the time it takes law enforcement to arrive on the scene.
PETERSBURG, Va. — The love between a tiny Chihuahua and much larger Gordon Setter was obvious to the animal control officers who responded to a shooting call Friday night in Petersburg. The Chihuahua charged at Petersburg Animal Control officer Jazmis Aponte when she moved in to load the injured Gordon Setter into her van. “The little Chihuahua was very unhappy with me taking him,” Aponte recalled. She said it was obvious the two dogs were bonded.
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".
