WASHINGTON -- LeBron James is now playing in the NBA finals, but basketball isn't the only thing on his mind during a week in which hate has been on display in places like Washington, Portland and Los Angeles. "Racism will always be a part of the world, a part of America," James said. When LeBron James speaks, the world listens. At an NBA championship press conference, James responded to his L.A. home getting spray-painted with the"N-word."
NEW YORK -- On sunny days, Susan Grenon and her 10-year-old son Paul enjoy spending time in the backyard of their Smithfiled, Rhode Island, home. But before they head out, they always lather on the sunscreen. "I have had three basal cell carcinomas and four precancerous moles removed in the last three years. It's a big deal," Susan said. The threat of skin cancer was a wake-up call to protect herself and her son, who burns easily.
BELLEFONTE, Penn. -- More Penn State fraternity brothers went before a judge Tuesday, charged in the death of Timothy Piazza, a 19-year-old pledge. The remaining eight Beta Theta Pi members rushed in and out of the courthouse Tuesday afternoon. William Brennan represents Joseph Ems, who was charged with recklessly endangering another person. "It's unspeakable, so it's just a very, very sad and tragic case," Brennan said.
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".
