A teed-off Long Island caddy is swinging back at his boss over a humiliating golf course prank. Robert Lee Wiggins, 50, of Hempstead, L.I., is suing the golf club where he worked for 20 years after the caddy manager stuck his penis or a facsimile sex toy in Wiggins’ face, a Brooklyn Federal Court lawsuit charged. A picture of the incident was then posted on Facebook, forcing the mortified plaintiff to quit his job rather than face his co-workers, according to court papers.
It was a case of very petty larceny. Outgoing White House spokesman Sean Spicer took matters into his own hands when he needed a mini-fridge, liberating the small appliance from an office of junior staffers, The Wall Street Journal reported. Spicer, roughly a month into his truncated run on the national stage, lacked a fridge to keep his lunch and his beverages chilled. So he dispatched one of his aides to an office filled with junior staffers in a building near the White House, the Journal said.
An underwater robot captured photos of 3-foot thick lumps of melted nuclear fuel covering the floor of a Japanese nuclear reactor wrecked by a 2011 earthquake. The solid lava-like rocks and hard layered clumps were inside a structure beneath the nuclear core of the Unit 3 reactor at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.
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".
