Megan Halicek went to Dr. Larry Nassar as a 15-year-old gymnast suffering from a fractured spine. But during what was supposed to be a routine appointment, Nassar assaulted her: “Again and again and again,” Halicek testified in court on Tuesday, “he abused me, all the while telling me stories about his Olympic journey.”“I closed my eyes tight, I held my breath, and I wanted to puke,” she recalled.
More Americans are blaming Donald Trump and Republicans for pushing the government toward a shutdown, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll. A total of 48 percent of respondents pointed the finger at the president and his party for the stalemate over immigration and border security that’s prevented Congress from reaching a deal to keep the government open. Broken down across party lines, 78 percent of Democrats overwhelmingly are laying the blame on the GOP and Trump.
Aly Raisman, a two-time Olympian, stood before a Michigan courtroom on Friday and confronted Larry Nassar in an impassioned indictment of the doctor, who has pled guilty to criminal sexual conduct, and USA Gymnastics. “Larry, you do realize now that we, this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time, are now a force. And you are nothing,” Raisman said. “The tables have turned Larry, we are here, we have our voices.
@jfpoole hi John! I'm sure you're quite busy today, but am trying to write up this Apple news. Tech isn't normally my beat, and was wondering if you might be able to chat briefly? My email is in my profile, or you can DM me for more details. Thanks so much!
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".
