A mass of students from Everett Middle School also marched into Dolores Park, chanting, “Am I next?! Am I next? !” Despite the smiles on students’ faces, the question, if you stopped to consider it, was chilling. At the front of one group, a teacher held a sign aloft in response to President Donald Trump’s suggestion that schools arm educators to protect against gun violence. “Arm me with books, pencils, paper, mental health resources and a livable wage … not guns!” it read.
How fair any of these payouts are is a moral question. The Las Vegas Victims Fund, like those before it, has routinely described their money as a gift. The subtext being that it is not determined based on financial need or the existence of other sources of money or resources (such as life insurance policies). It is also not based on factors like lost wages or income potential.
CHICAGO — In the spring of 2005, a group of Chicago police officers began terrorizing Diane Bond, a mother and public school janitor who lived at the Stateway Gardens housing project on the South Side of Chicago. Known as the Skullcap Crew, the officers ransacked her apartment, forced her to remove her clothes and expose herself for them (ostensibly to search for drugs), and demanded she watch as they beat a man seized from the building stairwell.
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".
