It sounds like a panacea: a technology that can record everybody’s intentions so there can be no “miscommunication” about consent. It sounds like just what the #MeToo moment needs. As we move away from outright sexual assaults, such as those allegedly committed by the President of the United States, and move towards more “gray areas” of scuzzy but non-criminal behavior, increasingly the “I thought she was cool with it,” defense is being deployed. Or the “I’m not a mind reader” defense.
EVEN IF THE GOVERNMENT SHUTS DOWN, THE COURTS WILL STILL STAY OPEN: For three weeks. After that, I don’t know. I’m rooting for total anarchy though. I’m one of those “anarchy is preferable to tyranny” guys. Basically the entire project of Western political philosophy has been trying to tell me I’m wrong, but those philosophers have all been white. Here’s my post. HOW ARE YOU DOING, 2LS and 3LS? Apparently 2Ls and 3Ls are more likely to screw around on their laptops than 1Ls. Which makes sense.
A Texas judge, Jack Robison, interrupted jury deliberations to tell the jurors that God told him that the defendant was not guilty. From the Austin-American Statesmen:A Comal County judge said God told him to intervene in jury deliberations to sway jurors to return a not guilty verdict in the trial of a Buda woman accused of trafficking a teen girl for sex.
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".
