I tried to remember my 16-year-old self the other day. A few of the things that concerned me included: buying my first car, not failing math and chemistry classes, making sure the gaps in the fence were secure enough to prevent smart cattle from seeking greener pastures. Not on the list: making money as a contract killer.
In the coming weeks, we will learn why police believe the man in the van got so mad at a pretty blond who had just left work at a high-profile bar in a high-profile neighborhood that he shot her and left her for dead. We will hear how a bullet shattered 27-year-old Ellie Richardson's face, about the weeks spent in the hospital away from her son, about how hard it was to look at herself in the mirror. All allegedly because of sudden anger after a senseless argument then -- pow! -- silence.
White nationalist and supremacist Richard Spencer is scheduled to speak at the University of Cincinnati Wednesday, March 14. A press release from the attorney representing the student who invited Spencer showed Spencer will speak that day in Zimmer Hall, a large lecture hall that has 400 seats. A time has not been determined. That date - one of three offered by UC - falls in the middle of the university's spring break, which runs from Sunday, March 12 to Saturday, March 18.
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".
