White Plains — The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced it will not pursue federal charges in the 2011 Summary Execution of Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. by White Plains police officers, but his son vows to continue his fight for justice. The Department of Justice announced Thursday it was closing its investigation into the Nov. 19, 2011, incident at the Winbrook Houses public housing complex because there was insufficient evidence to pursue federal charges.
The title of this post is pretty self-explanatory. Thanks in advance for indulging me. This DCist story about a wildly successful GoFundMe campaign centered around the appealing movie Hidden Figures warmed my heart at a point in the year when my heart was not especially warm. For a Vice profile, I spent 45 minutes chatting on the phone with a giddy, giggly Sam Richardson, one of my favorite up-and-coming comedic actors and a standout in the recent seasons of Veep. This guy is going places.
I couldn’t let 2017 slip away without indulging one more look back at the year in pop culture. Here are a few things that brought me joy. (And here are a few more.) Sorry, reputation. The undisputed Best Taylor Swift Songs of 2017 are Kelsea Ballerini’s “High School” and “I Hate Love Songs,” and the undisputed Best Taylor Swift Album of 2017 is Ballerini’s sophomore effort Unapologetically.
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".
