Through my personal experience, I learned domestic violence doesn’t have to be a black eye or a visit to the hospital. Domestic violence can be a lot of things and it can happen to anyone. I was in an abusive relationship for about two years. The first time I realized something was odd was when he pushed me against the wall. I was thinking this isn’t normal but this isn’t really abuse, right? It was. From there, things escalated. My ex-fiance slapped me, spit on me and tried to rape me.
Julia Peters' daughter hasn't left her mother's side since she's been back home. Last week, the 28-year-old was in Dominica when Hurricane Maria tore through the small island. "We saw roofs flying, we saw trees, just looking out of the windows, high winds. It sounded like a subway or something was coming down; it was extremely noisy and items flying everywhere. It was like something out of a movie," said Julia. The Ross University medical student was in Domininca studying to become doctor.
NEW ORLEANS -- An armed robbery on Dreux Avenue and Rhodes Street in Gentilly, an aggravated rape on Arcadia Lane in New Orleans East and a simple robbery on Rousseau Street in the St. Thomas area have one thing in common: the suspects are all juveniles. "This is a result of kids not being heard, listened to, cared for, having proper mentors and guidance, proper education. It's a cycle," said Sonny Lee, founder of Son of a Saint, a mentor program. “They're also getting pressured by older males.
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".
