Elvia Diaz: The co-founder of Chicanos Por La Causa has a legacy that's even more important to remember as we face today's racial tensions. I never socialized with Terri Cruz or spent much time with her. But somehow, I’ve felt her presence over the decades. It’s the sort of a connection you sense through the work of others whose fate sprang from the seeds she helped sow. Terri was the type of person you can’t dismiss or forget.
Elvia Diaz: People should show up in droves for an anti-Trump and anti-Arpaio rally in Phoenix, but they must be peaceful. I’m done with Joe Arpaio. I’m done with Donald Trump. I’m furious at Trump’s suggestion of pardoning Arpaio, who faces up to six months behind bars for blatantly disobeying federal court orders over racial a profiling case. We don’t know if Trump will pardon Arpaio during Tuesday’s visit, which already promises to spew toxic rain clouds all over Phoenix.
Elvia Diaz: Donald Trump thinks police can rough up suspects, but Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams says otherwise. White House officials tried to suggest that Donald Trump's suggestion that cops be rough with suspects was a joke. Nice try excusing the president’s off-the-cuff remarks, but this is no joke. The nation still is reeling with tensions over police violence, particularly against minorities. Has the president forgotten the race protests out of Ferguson, Mo., and Baton Rouge, La.?
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".
