We’ve all waited patiently for this: the penalty phase. Massachusetts hasn’t executed a man in 68 years, but federal law allows for the death penalty. Will the jury send Tsarnaev to die, or choose to save a life? The answer may lie in the jury selection process, commonly known as voir dire. Juror 552 seemed perfect from the start. The white-haired man, sitting at the long courtroom table, didn’t know anyone personally affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.
Last year, a 40-year-old man from the Houston suburbs took a skin test for tuberculosis, required for his job at a Texas state prison, and tested positive. “I was advised to stay out of work, churches, schools, public places,” he says. “I was contagious.”Tuberculosis is such a public health risk that every day for a month an outreach worker from the Harris County Department of Public Health drove nine miles to the man’s house to watch him take his daily doses of two antibiotics and Vitamin B6.
President Donald Trump on Thursday endorsed Republican Rick Saccone in the upcoming Pennsylvania special election and gave the state lawmaker a shout-out during a speech near Pittsburgh billed as a discussion of the economy. Speaking at H&K Equipment Company, Trump called Saccone “special.” Earlier on Thursday, he that he was heading to the state to “give my total support to RICK SACCONE, running for Congress in a Special Election (March 13).”“Rick is a great guy.
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".
