At a glance, Dawn Sahr and Asma Jama might appear like improbable friends. Putting aside any visual prejudices and examining their backstory only makes the idea friendship between them even less likely. But here we are, the two women from different backgrounds and connected by a horrible act of violence are able to embrace like sisters in the photo above. Nearly two years ago, Jama was out enjoying dinner with her family at a popular chain restaurant in Coo Rapids, Minnesota.
Theories swirled around the internet on Thursday that Akie Abe, the first lady of Japan, pretended she doesn’t know how to speak English to avoid having to talk with President Trump at the G20 Summit in Germany last week. The speculation stems from a passage in a wildly explosive interview the president gave to The New York Times.
Masih Alinejad is back with a new video that was shot by an inspiring woman in Tehran who is hoping to become a model. Manijeh, 35, hasn’t let her physical disabilities get in the way of her living a full life. She’s aspiring to “break the taboos” and become a model. Alinejad, the founder of the popular My Stealthy Freedom Facebook page, directed Manijeh to use a cellphone camera to record her daily life and then send the footage to Alinejad.
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".
