Human rights attorneys are fighting for a Mexican journalist jailed after seeking asylum in the United States to be freed from an immigration detention center in El Paso, Texas. Emilio Gutierrez reported on corruption within Mexico’s military 10 years ago. He fled the country, a place where last year alone, journalists were murdered at a rate of nearly one every few weeks. He sought asylum in the U.S. and was summarily denied then jailed.
A U.S. Border Patrol was sentenced Wednesday for his role in stealing firearms including devices for machine-guns and sneaking them into Arizona. Jesus Manuel Franco wasn’t merely a federal agent; he was a Border Patrol firearms instructor. Prosecutors say that in 2014, he and a second agent stole about $100,000 worth of firearms parts from an agency armory in Harper’s Ferry West Virginia. And then mailed those boxes of weapon parts to the Border Patrol’s Willcox Arizona station for personal use.
Cities along the U.S.-Mexico border have a water problem, mostly in keeping enough fresh water available for the region. A conference to be held in late February is intended to address the issue. The border water summit will take place in El Paso, Texas and will focus on the types of challenges that municipal water agencies face on both sides of the border. Chief among those is water desalination technology, but also the agreements between both countries on the sharing of the Colorado River.
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".
