The first transgender person to run for the Virginia House of Delegates found an unlikely silver lining in President Trump's decision to ban transgender people from serving in the military. Danica Roem received more than $52,000 in donations Wednesday, the day that Trump announced his decision on Twitter. "We attribute that to people wanting to make a statement, that they are opposed to what the president announced yesterday regarding transgender discrimination," said Roem, who is a Democrat.
Police discovered a 60-year-old homeless man living in the attic of a Northern Virginia woman who called police after hearing noises overhead. The woman, who doesn't want to be publicly identified, said she heard the noises early Friday morning, while it was still dark. "I heard footsteps above me and I checked in with my landlord, because sometimes he's used the storage above in the past," said the woman, who rents part of a house on 22nd Street S. in Arlington, Virginia, near Pentagon City.
A mother has a strong message for the person who shot and killed her son inside her home in Silver Spring, Maryland, Wednesday night. "I saw you. I saw what you did. I chased you to your car. So you know that I recognize you and the car. So, now you're going to have to come after me. You did something to my son who was innocent so now you're going to have to come after me. And may God get you," said Gisell Morch.
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".
