Valerie Castile’s attempt to reach relatives who might want part of the $3 million settlement in the death of her son, Philando Castile, yielded only one reply — a letter written by his father from a federal penitentiary where he is serving life in prison. He didn’t ask for a cent, nor did any other of Castile’s relatives. “I am trying to deal with the reality of what has occurred,” wrote Phelix H. Frazier, Sr. “…The haunting images of my son taking his last breath as I watched on television.
A black man was punched and kicked unconscious early Friday by white patrons of a Maplewood bar in a bloody fight that was allegedly motivated by race, according to assault charges. A verbal altercation began inside McCarron's Pub and Grill, 1986 Rice St., and turned into a fight about 12:20 a.m. The incident involved two groups: two black women and a black man, and a white man, a white woman and another woman whose race was not specifically mentioned in court documents.
MINNEAPOLIS – The city of St. Anthony has entered a separation agreement with Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez, who was acquitted last month in the fatal shooting of Philando Castile. “In order to serve the public interest and quickly assure the public that Officer Yanez will not continue as a St. Anthony police officer, the city has entered into a separation agreement that ends all employment rights of Officer Yanez at the city,” said a statement posted on the city’s website Monday afternoon.
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".
