Three people including at least one child died in a townhouse fire in the Fairview neighborhood early Friday, the Anchorage Fire Department said. One of the victims was a kindergartner at Fairview Elementary School, an Anchorage School District spokeswoman said. Little additional information was immediately available about other victims or the cause of the fire.
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game wants the public's help counting the city's moose by texting, calling or going online with sightings from Friday through Sunday. The moose cow bedded down next to the basement window? The calf licking the pickup next to the garage? Roving teams of biologists can't always spot them. But the public can. “We really need the public involvement. They’re going to make or break this study,” said Dave Battle, Fish and Game’s management biologist in Anchorage.
HATCHER PASS — Emergency crews responding to an injured snowmachiner in the Talkeetna Mountains Thursday encountered a steep, switch-backed and unplowed road under more than a foot of snow. The Alaska Department of Transportation stopped plowing the road to Hatcher Pass on Feb. 11 due to the avalanche danger, spokeswoman Shannon McCarthy said. A series of storms that brought wind, a warmup and then heavy snow set up high potential for snow slides, McCarthy said.
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".
