The ultimate tragedy is not the cruelty and oppression by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people," said Ashton Lewis, the young winner of the MLK Oratory Contest. Austin's celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. began Monday morning on the University of Texas campus near the MLK statue. UT President Gregory Fenves pointed out King sacrificed everything for justice and equality.
Sutherland Springs is still healing after the horrific church shooting that took 26 lives last year. Today, the final victim recovering in the hospital, a six-year-old boy, got to ride home in style. “He wanted to go faster. He wanted the siren to be louder and he wanted me to honk more,” said Stockdale Assistant Fire Chief Rusty Duncan. Duncan says his six-year-old buddy Ryland Ward loved every minute of his ride home from the hospital in a big fire truck.
For Natasha Verma, there's really nothing she can't handle. She graduated from UT at just 17-years-old, making her the University's youngest grad. She knew journalism was in her future. “I interned at Fox, that was my first TV internship ever,” Verma said. After FOX 7, Verma got her Masters from Columbia, produced a feature-length documentary called “Hardy” -- now she's a morning reporter at NBC in Boston. “I get up at 2 in the morning.
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".
