The Kings students who wore racist basketball jerseys and the Mason teacher who spoke about lynching a black student have at least one thing in common, aside from the uproar they’ve caused this week. They all spend their days in school districts where the white population is much larger than the black population. The Kings school district is almost 88 percent white and 2 percent black. The Mason district is about 77 percent white and 3 percent black. That’s a big gap, but it isn’t unusual in Ohio.
Thomas A. Luken, one of Cincinnati's most powerful politicians of the last half-century, died Wednesday. He was 92. Luken served as a city councilman, a mayor, a congressman and a local Democratic Party chairman in a career that spanned decades and affected the lives of thousands of people. He also was a mentor to young politicians, including Mayor John Cranley, and raised a son, Charlie Luken, who also went on to become a mayor and congressman.
Cincinnati’s biggest cheerleaders say it won’t take long to replace the Macy’s store Downtown with something even better. Some touted Downtown’s “vibrancy” after Macy’s announced on Wednesday it would close the store, while others described the site west of Fountain Square as “a great address” that tenants would be racing to fill.
@RonMBrandt Thanks for reaching out. Given the assumptions made about those schools this week, the story was intended only to show what census #’s actually tell us about their racial makeup. Beyond that, it said nothing. It certainly didn’t suggest diversity matters more than education.
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".
