A community is in mourning after 17 people were tragically killed in a mass shooting Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Matthew Infante, who drove about 50 miles from the Kendall area, was sitting quietly near a makeshift memorial to pay respect to the lives of the 17 victims killed. “I know nobody on these walls, yet I want justice for them,” said Infante. “I want my heart to beat for all of them. I will make sure I will remember their names.
Following controversy after a 7-year-old was handcuffed for hitting a teacher, the Miami-Dade School District announced temporary changes to its Baker Act policy, which relates to involuntary hospitalization and mental evaluation. The Coral Way Elementary student was involuntarily detained and evaluated on Jan. 26 under Florida's Baker Act mental health law. His family – and many in the public discourse – criticized police because the child was placed in handcuffs.
As a medical examiner performs an autopsy on 12-year-old Dylan Winnik, a neighbor recounts the harrowing experience in which he attempted – unsuccessfully – to save the boy's life. "It hurts me a lot because I wasn't able to have the opportunity to try and save his life," Dylan's neighbor Andreas Oscar Cabrera said. Dylan studied at Okeeheelee Middle School. His family thought he just had a cold – something usually much easier to recover from than the flu. On Tuesday – a few days later – Dylan died.
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".
