Reporter for The Huffington Post covering national criminal justice, policing, the death penalty and politics. Entertainment and culture writer in another life -- and excited when the former and latter coverage areas converge. Pro-bike, pro-Midwest, pro-DIY.
With his state and federal appeals exhausted and Gov. Mary Fallin saying on Tuesday that she won't intervene, Glossip's last hope is a motion his lawyers filed with the state Court of Criminal Appeals based on the new evidence. He is scheduled to die at 3 p.m. local time. Supporters of Glossip, 52, said they were outraged that his life hangs on the testimony of a convicted murderer who struck a plea deal to avoid execution himself.
Sandra Bland's friends and family are looking for answers after the 28-year-old Chicago area resident left Illinois on a road trip, was flagged in a traffic stop and ended up dead in a Texas jail. "How did a traffic violation end in death? What happened in that jail?" Bland's friend LaNitra Dean said to The Huffington Post. "What happened in that jail? That’s on everyone’s mind."
When Katrina came bearing down on New Orleans in late August of 2005, Belinda had apparently hoped for the best: She had tucked several keepsakes, including her and Patrick's wedding photos, into a Rubbermaid box on the second floor to keep them out of reach of Katrina's rising floodwaters. Instead, Metairie was the first of four moves Belinda and Patrick would make over the next 10 years. Securing a new flood insurance policy on their old home would soon prove an insurmountable task.
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".
