O.J. Simpson, 70, not a fan of gloves, is likely going to get paroled today after that whole little merchandise mishap. In 2008, O.J. Simpson was convicted of armed robbery, kidnapping and a whole slew of other charges and sentenced to 33-years behind bars. If granted parole, which will likely be the case, he’ll join us back in society sometime in October.
As most people hopefully know, if the cops pull you over and find stacks of cash, they can seize it until you’re able to prove where it came from. You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. They can do the same thing with your house, your boat, your car… All they have to do is suspect that whatever it is they are seizing is connected to drugs or a crime, then boom, it’s theirs for the taking.
So far this year police have killed 668 people in America, the majority of whom have been individuals of color, according to killedbypolice.net, a website that tracks officer-involved killings. But if you’ve spent any time watching CNN over the past, oh, several months, you might have thought police had only killed one person, Justine Damond, an unarmed Australian woman in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Honestly, her shooting was tragic.
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".
