He was put through trauma that no child should ever have to go through, but you wouldn't know it from one look at Raymond "Ray-Ray" Hinton's smiling face. In June 2014, when he was just 15 months old, he was subjected to a brutal beating at the hands of Lamar James Crump, a close and trusted friend of his mother, Bekah Sabin. Ray-Ray had to undergo emergency surgery to alleviate the pressure on his brain and have a shunt placed in his skull.
It's not been a week since Equifax revealed the details of 143 million American consumers had been compromised in a data breach, and the dumpster fire continues. The credit reporting agency, which holds some of your most precious personal data (despite never having gained your consent to hold this information) has stumbled from shambolic mess to shambolic mess since disclosing the breach last Friday.
The Super Bowl arrives in Minneapolis next year, and organizers have put out the call for 10,000 volunteers. They'll be asked to give up their time to help run the 10-day extravaganza of events leading up to the big game. But the use of those volunteers – which is being issued by the nonprofit Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee – could be questionable under the state's labor laws, given that it's ultimately in support of an event run by the for-profit NFL.
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".
