Carlos Khalil Guzman is fighting Islamophobia with his camera. After watching an upsurge in anti-Muslim rhetoric and hate crimes over the past two years — including the fatal stabbing of two men in Portland, Oregon, last month by a man shouting anti-Muslim slurs — Guzman said he knew he had to act but wasn’t satisfied with the usual tactics of protests and petitions. “I’m an activist on the side, and we protest, do all this stuff, but I felt like that wasn’t enough,” he told NBC News.
In celebration of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, a group of more than two-dozen Muslim Girl Scouts hosted an iftar dinner June 13 to welcome some of Orange County’s newest residents — refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. “During Ramadan we always want to give back,” said Aisha Cabrer, the leader of Girl Scout Troop 3119, which is affiliated with Minaret Academy, a Muslim school in Anaheim.
Nestled between a highway, a gas station and Starbucks is a copper dome rising above the suburban landscape. The dome, an estimated 20 feet in diameter, sits atop a beige building, next to a rectangular tower nearly 70 feet tall, adorned with an intricate blue, green and red design.
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".
