You may know it as the parable of The Scorpion and The Frog. The way it was told to me as a young child growing up was as the fable of The Crocodile and The Frog. My father would tell it to me as a warning whenever I became too trusting or misjudged someone’s character. I thought of it this week as I watched elated Zimbabweans pour onto the streets of their cities, and ours, to celebrate a new dawn.It goes like this.There once was a frog who longed to cross a fast-flowing river.
The court on Friday morning overturned a six-year sentence handed down by the High Court in Pretoria and replaced it with a sentence of 13 years and five months. JOHANNESBURG - The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) says it does not find that Oscar Pistorius is genuinely remorseful for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. The court on Friday morning overturned a six-year sentence handed down by the High Court in Pretoria and replaced it with a sentence of 13 years and five months.
#ReevaSteenkamp's parents say they have always had faith in the justice system and today they have finally got justice for their daughter. But they say they will never get closure because Reeva is never coming back. They have also sent their love to #Jayde's family. Both from PE.
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".
