A Texas deputy constable has been charged with official oppression in the brutal 2011 beating of a young man and his family. The charges came after an internal investigation into the Sept. 10, 2011 incident. Police dashboard camera footage released earlier this month allegedly shows deputy constable Jimmy Drummond beating a man who was pulled over for speeding. The suspect's father and mother also claim they were dragged and kicked by deputies, according to KHOU.
A trio of adorable snow monkey babies have arrived at the Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland. Born between April 21 and 25, the 3-week-old babies are still staying close to their mothers -- Mang, Djangal and Angara -- and a press release from the zoo says that it might be a while before they venture out on their own. Because of this, it's still too soon for zookeepers to determine the sex of the babies. The new babies increase the total number of snow monkeys at the Scottish zoo to 21.
UPDATE: Burger King has fired three employees over the incident. PREVIOUSLY: The tech media likes to describe Internet image board 4chan as a lawless, unruly place, but apparently there's justice in the Web's Wild West after all. An anonymous 4chan user and Burger King employee posted a photo of himself stepping in bins of lettuce to the site on the evening of July 16. The original poster captioned the image with "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King."
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".
