Aly Raisman’s decision to bare her soul and reveal the sexual abuse allegedly inflicted by her team doctor when she was a teen is the pinnacle of bravery. I’m sickened by the parade of predators revealed in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. But it’s incredible to see the women — and men — courageously going public. Aly is America’s sweetheart, a three-time Olympic gold medal gymnast and a role model to a legion of young girls.
During his first tour in Iraq with the Army, Tim Cross lost 11 friends. Their names are now tattooed on his left arm. During his third and final combat tour, in Afghanistan, two more friends were killed when their helicopter crashed during an air fight in 2011. Cross was the helicopter’s mechanic. Their deaths, he told me, were surreal. “It hit a lot closer to home when they were pilots on an aircraft that I worked on,” Cross said yesterday.
“She’d do anything for her babies. Anything. Even give her own life like she did,” her sister, Mandi Lookingbill, told me last night. “She gave her own life trying to protect them.”Ward was among the 26 killed when a gunman dressed in all black and wearing tactical gear opened fire inside the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas. Ward and her daughter, Brooke, 5, were among those killed inside the church, a friend said. Another daughter, Emily, 7, died at a hospital.
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".
