- With a barrage of sexual assault allegations against men in positions of power leading many to feel empowered, experts are also noting that some those same accounts can bring others back to past traumas that are difficult to revisit. It's a constant reminder that seemingly everyone in our society knows someone who has faced sexual harassment or survived sexual assault, and that the extent of a person's trauma can often rely on their experience the first time they break their silence.
- Give to the Max Day raised $23 million for more than 6,000 organizations last year, but one Minnesota woman is calling the legitimacy of some of those non-profits into question after discovering several non-profits listed aren’t in good standing. Before people start donating for the annual day of giving in Minnesota, she wants more people to be aware of where their donations are going.
- A series of swastikas and hateful markings drawn and carved into various surfaces on the Macalester College in St. Paul is causing confusion and dismay from all corners of campus, with many students saying this is the opposite sort of behavior they'd expect from their "progressive" school.

Those who’ve endured harassment/assault share their stories with great risk."If [talking about it] is a good experience, they're likely going to be able to continue to process,"Teri Walker McLaughlin said,“if it's not a good experience, they may bury it."

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".
