As Aaron Schock packs up his pheasant feathered Congressional office and bids adieu to the lush life he enjoyed on Capitol Hill, he’ll presumably be letting his lawyers do much of the talking when it comes to explaining the various alleged violations of federal law that led him to resign earlier this week. Not that his own father doesn’t have feelings, and theories, and grudges—like any dad would. A local TV station in Illinois caught up with Poppa Schock and an awesome paternal soliloquy ensued.
In 2014, Michael Finkel reported on the life of Christopher Knight, a man who'd spent 27 years in the woods of Maine, never interacting with another human being the entire time. Now, Finkel's new book The Stranger in the Woods expands on the story of the world's most isolated man.
Though the cops in Baltimore have been the focus of intense national scrutiny all week, few people have paid closer attention to them than Peter Moskos. A professor of criminal justice and sociology who now teaches at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Moskos used to be a cop in Baltimore (an experience he wrote about in the acclaimed book,Cop in the Hood: My Year Policing Baltimore's Eastern District ).

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".
