A 19-year-old student has been expelled from the University of Alabama for using a racial slur repeatedly in videos posted on social media, the Washington Post reports. The student, Harley Barber, reportedly posted two videos to a secret Instagram account on Martin Luther King Jr. Day where she repeatedly says a racial slur. AL.com published a transcript of what the sorority student said in the videos.
Some people go to the gym, deep clean their house, or spend hours scrolling through social media when they're feeling stressed out. I'm all the way here for whatever form of self care works for you, but I'm not someone who exercises when I need a release. Instead, you'll find me wandering around a retail store, imaging what my life as designed by that store would be. I usually opt for my local mall, but if I don't feel like driving, Target is always my first choice.
An Ohio middle school teacher has been placed on indefinite administrative leave after allegedly telling a Black student his classmates would "become a mob who will want to lynch you" if he didn't finish his homework, Cincinnati.com reports. The 13-year old student didn't tell anyone about the incident, which reportedly happened on Dec. 4, for a week because he was worried he'd get in trouble for standing up to an authority figure, his mother, Tanisha Agee-Bell, told The New York Times.
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".
