Carl Dabadie Jr., who served as police chief when an officer shot and killed Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 2016, announced his resignation and eventual retirement on Monday. In a letter dated July 24, Dabadie hinted that his departure was in part because of a strained relationship with Mayor Sharon Weston Broome, who campaigned in 2016 on promises to replace the chief.
NEW YORK CITY — For Brittany Ferrell, it started with intense mood swings. Then there were tears over things she knew she couldn’t change or control. Then one day, the 28-year-old mother of a 9-year-old couldn’t will herself out of bed. Ferrell, a racial justice activist in St. Louis, has been open about her own struggle with depression as a side effect of her activism. She helped lead protests in the days and months that followed the police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
Eugenics, or forced sterilization and controlled breeding, accounts for some of the darkest projects in American history. It’s seldom talked about or taught in schools, but the sterilization of women in prisons was common until as recently as 2010. So guess what’s back again in 2017. A jail in White County, Tennessee, is coercing both men and women to take on semi-permanent birth control procedures in exchange for a 30-day credit off their jail time, News Channel 5 reported Wednesday.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
