More than half of the women who are murdered in the US are killed as a result of romantic partner violence — with almost all of them dying at the hands of a current or former lover, a report says. Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control studied over 10,000 female deaths in 18 states from 2003 to 2014 and found that 55 percent of them were related to disputes between intimate partners.
A Pulitzer Prize winning editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal was found dead in his apartment on Thursday night, the newspaper says. Joseph Rago, 34, was discovered by authorities at around 7:40 p.m. in his home in Manhattan after he failed to show up for work earlier in the day, according to police. He had no obvious signs of trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene, cops said.
The death of an Australian bride-to-be at the hands of a Minnesota cop was “quite clearly” an improper use of force, according to her family’s lawyer — who claims she’s the “most innocent” police shooting victim he has ever seen. “I mean she saves ducklings out of the sewer, for God’s sakes,” explained attorney Robert Bennett, who was hired earlier this week to represent the relatives of Justine Damond.
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".
