In a kingdom where torture and execution define the justice system, some inmates are part of a perk-filled experiment. A room with shimmering pink walls, a double bed and a mini-bar is an important feature of a Saudi prison designed to de-radicalize jihadis. The space at al-Ha’ir prison in Riyadh is a conjugal-visitation room. Inmates are allowed to have wives visit once a month—and if you have more than one, you get more time surrounded by the shimmering pink walls.
Former football star Orenthal James Simpson, more commonly known as O.J. Simpson, or simply “The Juice,” could soon be released from prison, where he is serving time on robbery and kidnapping charges. On Thursday, July 20, he is facing “the parole hearing of the century,” dubbed so by Christopher Darden, the prosecutor who failed to get him convicted in the 1995 trial for the murder of his wife Nicole Simpson and Ron Brown.
Airlines are starting to implement additional security measures for international flights to the US, potentially meaning even more hassle for travelers. The security measures apply to roughly 280 airports in 105 countries and do not affect domestic flights, a spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told Quartz. The airlines covered by the new regulations announced last month by DHS secretary John Kelly were given time to implement them.
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".
