Two Confederate flags have been removed from the windows of an East Village apartment — at least for now. The windows of resident Will Green’s East Eighth Street unit were covered with white drapes Tuesday morning, a day after his landlord withdrew a lawsuit over the tenant’s controversial Confederate display. Still, a building source said he didn’t think the matter was fully resolved because Green has been “very insistent that the flags remain.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Hundreds of teary-eyed mourners gathered Wednesday to mourn the woman who was killed when a neo-Nazi fanatic rammed his car into a group of counter-protestors at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. Mourners wearing purple arm-bands and purple pieces of clothing – as per request of the victim’s family – solemnly snaked into the Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville for the memorial service of 32-year-old Heather Heyer.
Four women brought pink baseball bats and purple shields to Wednesday’s memorial for slain anti-racist protester Heather Heyer — until cops told them they were “scaring people.”The women lined up outside the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, Va., more than an hour before the scheduled 11 a.m. start of Heyer’s memorial service, standing with their hands clasped behind them and their homemade weaponry arrayed on the ground. “We are anti-fascist. We are here to protect the people.
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".
