Fewer Latinos and African Americans are turned down for home loans in metro Phoenix than in many other parts of the U.S. But in the Valley, where buying a house is less expensive than in most big cities, few would-be homebuyers from those groups apply for mortgages in the first place. That means minority households are missing out on a key opportunity to build wealth, reinforcing racial inequalities.
Even though the practice of explicitly discriminating against black and Latino homebuyers ended decades ago, metro Phoenix remains fairly segregated. Whites are more than three times as likely as Latinos or African Americans to apply for home loans in Maricopa County, according to an Arizona Republic analysis of national data provided by the Center for Investigative Reporting and the Associated Press.
The NRA Foundation provided grants to 15 Arizona high school clubs between 2010 and 2016, giving equipment and money often used for competitive shooting teams. The grants total more than $200,000 during the seven-year period, according to an Associated Press analysis of National Rifle Association Foundation's tax filings. The gun-rights group has come under intense scrutiny and criticism in the wake of the February shooting at a Parkland, Fla. high school, in which a gunman killed 17 students.
@RyanAndrewBoyd@angelnmendoza_ Don't mistake my comment for saying I think he'll be worse than me at it. He's undoubtedly better than me at it. I'm just suggesting that he might find the technology lacking
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".
