A Michigan police department has come under intense scrutiny after body camera footage showed officers handcuffing a shrieking 11-year-old girl while searching for a 40-year-old woman suspected of stabbing a relative. Grand Rapids police chief David Rahinsky said Tuesday the officers were wrong to handle the girl in such a manner and called the video footage “disturbing.”“Listening to the 11-year-old’s response makes my stomach turn,” he said.
Republicans on Friday released their finalized tax plan, which will cut rates for corporations and the rich, with hopes of sending legislation to President Donald Trump before the year’s end. The bill presents a significant reduction for the corporate tax rate, going to 21% from 35%. The tax plan cuts rates for the wealthy and allows some tax savings for the middle class, the Washington Post reports.
Italian food giant Eataly has distanced itself from Mario Batali by dropping products with the chef’s likeness from its shelves. Batali, whose products at Eataly included pasta, sauces, olive oils and books, was accused of sexual harassment this week by four women who told Eater that the chef touched them inappropriately. A spokesperson for Eataly said the company has removed the products as part of a move to end active involvement with Batali.
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".
