Opponents of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's ruthless war on drugs — which has claimed the lives of thousands of men, woman and children — are finally joining forces. And from inside the walls of a VIP detention facility in Manila, one critic has gone so far as to call him a "beast" and a "sociopath". Thousands of people have been gunned down in the state-sanctioned, year-long crackdown, primarily poor Filipinos.
In the Philippine capital of Manila, inmates at this desperately overcrowded remand prison pray for the small things. That it won't rain, that they can buy some food to supplement meagre rations, that the case against them will soon be heard in court. Any downpour in Quezon City Jail means precious places to sleep in the open air will be lost. Spaces are bought and sold here — but the simple reality is that the state-sanctioned war on drugs means there just isn't enough room.
Vincent Go spends most nights on the road, waiting to hear where the next victim in Manila's drug war has been found. For the past year, the photographer has been documenting the dead. One man, one camera — and the end of the lives of 300 men, women and children. President Rodrigo Duterte has defended this so-called war on drugs, saying police are authorised to shoot only when threatened by suspects.
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".
