I have been practicing law over thirty-seven years. I have seen unfairness from all sides, and as I watch what is going on the United States political scene today, I wonder if it has ever been worse. Americans, including Evangelical Christians, elect a President that brags about sexually harassing women, grabbing them by their genitals, kissing them without their permission, and walking into a room of young beauty contestants while they are getting dressed.
May 1, 1989, Donald Trump spent $89,000 on advertisements calling for the death penalty for ﬁve young teen-aged Black and Brown boys for a rape they didn’t commit. Years later with due process rights, another person through DNA and confession evidence was found guilty and the city of New York paid $40,000,000 to settle their wrongfully convicted men’s lawsuit. Trump doubled down saying the ﬁve were still guilty.
Ava DuVernay and Oprah Winfrey appeared on a cover of a recent Variety magazine. Somewhere in the accompanying article, Ava DuVernay used the word Inclusion, saying she wants to be included, while the word Diversity is too broad and may or may not include her. She choose the word Inclusion because, she says, “I want to be included and not a participant in an experiment of diversity.”An example can be found in looking at the progression of the Civil Rights Movement.
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".
