NEWARK — Reality star Mike Sorrentino has built a career on being in-your-face as the Jersey Shore’s “The Situation.”The 35-year-old however, didn’t have much to say leaving federal court in Newark Friday after pleading guilty to one count of tax evasion as part of plea deal in an ongoing tax fraud case. Sorrentino admitted to not paying taxes on $8.9 million in income he earned at the height of the Jersey Shore success between 2010 and 2012.
MIDTOWN, Manhattan — Call it a second “leash” on life for one-year-old pup, Buddy. The german shepherd was in good spirits Thursday just five days after he was found abandoned, severely injured and tied to a fence outside the animal care centers facility in Brooklyn. “While I observed the dog tied up and noticed he was missing part of his leg,” the kennel worker who discovered him told PIX11.
ALABAMA — Harley Barber, 19, has gone viral for all the wrong reasons. The University of Alabama student is at the center of a firestorm after posting racially charged videos on Instagram where she repeatedly used the n-word among other profanities. “I f**king hate n*****s,” she proclaims in one video as she shuts off a running faucet in what appears to be a public bathroom. “I just saved the f*****g n*****s by shutting that water off, so,” she says.
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".
