Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons and Justine Simmons have always promoted positivity. Therefore, it was natural for the power couple to team up with AT&T’s #InspiredMobility campaign, which highlights inspiration through technology. It’s been 12 years since the premiere of their fan favorite MTV series Run’s House, and the couple hasn’t slowed down one bit. They continue to develop positive content everyone can stream on their devices with services like DIRECTV NOW, DIRECTV and social media.
Earlier this week, a woman came forward accusing Grammy Award-winning musician, Usher of knowing exposing her to herpes. The accusations were alarming, and fueled ongoing claims that the singer had sexual contact with another woman–and a man–while knowingly hiding the fact that he had the incurable disease.
While people of color face the conversation of race, racial discrimination and White privilege on a daily basis, the pot stirring topic is one that people of non-brown complexions tend to tip-toe around. Either they blatantly express their views or dismiss the conversation all together. Ideals of White privilege have proven themselves to be true. In December 2014, the trending tag #CrimingWhileWhite, displayed the consequences while comparing the crimes of Black people to White 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".
