Closing arguments begin Monday in the trial of the man accused of killing Kate Steinle. The case has drawn national attention because the man charged was in the country illegally after being deported five times. But for jurors, the main question is whether they believe the defense's argument that the gun fired accidentally.Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd speaks with Alex Emslie (@SFNewsReporter), criminal justice reporter at KQED.
On July 1, 2015, a 32-year-old woman was fatally shot while walking with her father along San Francisco's waterfront. Within hours, police arrested a Mexican national in connection with her slaying. Who he is changed the case from a local murder into a national controversy.Opening arguments in the murder trial begin Monday. Marisa Lagos (@mlagos) and Alex Emslie (@SFNewsReporter) of KQED unpack the facts and falsehoods surrounding the slaying of Kathryn Steinle — and the debate it's ignited.
BLM ranger John Woychowski’s .40-caliber Sig Sauer handgun has received far less attention, and how it ended up in Garcia Zarate’s hands remains a mystery. Garcia Zarate’s defense attorneys plan to argue that he found the gun wrapped in a T-shirt, and that he didn’t know what he was holding when a round accidentally fired, bounced off the concrete pier and traveled some 78 feet before it hit Steinle in the back on July 1, 2015.
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".
