A new study has found that early adolescents around the world share stereotypical beliefs about gender in relationships, despite cultural and geographic differences. "Boys Should Have The Courage to Ask a Girl Out": Gender Norms in Early Adolescent Relationships is a qualitative, interview-based study of children between 11 and 13 years old from five poor communities in cities around the world: Baltimore, Cuenca, Edinburgh, Ghent, and Nairobi.
On Thursday, September 14, the Supreme Court of Washington State upheld the conviction of Eric Gray, who had been found guilty on charges of distributing an image of a "minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct," according to court documents. Controversially, the minor in question was Gray himself. In 2013, when Gray was 17 years old, he sent a photo of his erect penis to a 22-year-old woman known as "T.R.," along with another text that read, "Do u like it babe? It's for you.
Earlier this week, a Minnesota Republican lawmaker named Pat Garofalo came under fire after he tweeted a statement that seemed to imply antifa protesters should be sexually assaulted as a means of "rehabilitation." The tweet has since been deleted, but it was preserved via the internet archiving site, Wayback Machine. On September 10, Portland police announced that antifa protesters were "throwing irritant smoke and projectiles at police" during a rally against a far-right group.
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".
