A judge tore into serial sexual abuser Larry Nassar for a letter he wrote ahead of his sentencing, claiming he wasn’t sure whether he could “mentally” handle four days of victim-impact statements. “You spent thousands of hours perpetrating sexual assault on minors,” Ingham County Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina told the disgraced doctor, adding that he should be able to handle several days worth of statements from his victims.
President Trump’s administration is blocking Haitians from obtaining certain temporary work visas — and the move could leave his family’s businesses with a diminished employee pool. The Department of Homeland Security in a regulatory filing said Haiti was removed from the list of more than 80 countries eligible for the H-2B as well as the H-2A visas due to “high levels of fraud and abuse” and a “high rate of overstaying the terms” of their visas.
Olympic Gymnast McKayla Maroney urged a judge to sentence disgraced doctor Larry Nassar to life behind bars for sexually abusing her and more than 100 others under the guise of medical “treatment.”In her victim impact statement read aloud by Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis during Nassar’s sentencing Thursday, Maroney recalled the birth of her Olympic aspirations and love for gymnastics — which would later be muddied by the former doctor’s ongoing abuse.
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".
