The FBI’s most recent “Crime in the United States” report lacks almost 70 percent of data tables it provided in the 2015 report, according to Human Rights Watch. The report, created through the Uniform Crime Reporting program, is considered by many as the gold standard of crime data in the United States. It collects crime, arrest and police data from around the country. It is used by researchers and policymakers to inform their criminal justice work.
The update creates a single extension that will work on numerous browsers and allow the RECAP system to run faster, update more immediately and no longer have docket size restrictions when uploading new data. “It’s an exciting time for RECAP,” Free Law Project co-founder Michael Lissner wrote in a blog post. “After many years with little change or improvement, we’re moving it to a more reliable, robust, and innovative system.” The original RECAP extension was launched in 2009.
The attorney general of Missouri has launched an investigation into whether Google mishandled customer data and violated antitrust law. “There is strong reason to believe that Google has not been acting with the best interest of Missourians in mind,” Josh Hawley said in a statement. The investigative subpoena will determine whether Google violated the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act, the state’s primary consumer protection law, and state antitrust law.
@LeanLawStrategy@LegalRnD@keithporcaro and I (Keith and @GtownTechLaw plug) are trying to do something similar, but focused on criminal justice issues. We’re about to have our first batch of course projects complete. But same, lots of lessons learned this term, and plenty of room for improvement.
@LeanLawStrategy I’ve been tossing around the idea of a course that takes various ways to think about an issue as promoted in the tech world (user centered design, agile development, threatcasting) and bring them together as modules in a course intended to break the law school brain.
@LeanLawStrategy You saying "Lawyers have not been trained to deal with change” is important. To this point, law school needs to teach multiple ways to think/problem solve, not just one. This is the biggest fundamental problem w/ legal education's status quo, regardless of tech.
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".
