Twenty: the number I know all too well. It's the number of veterans who commit suicide every day. But what about the numbers that people aren't talking about? For example, the number of psychiatric casualties since the end of World War II far exceeds the combined total number of soldiers wounded or killed in action. Reread that if it didn't sink in the first time. In more tangible terms, for every battlefield death in the last 16 years of war, an estimated 29 to 33 war veterans have died by suicide.
Holt, 27, has pleaded guilty to a string of firearm and child pornography offences after being caught hoarding a number of homemade guns. Judge McLennan expressed serious concerns about Holt’s chances of rehabilitation given he’d sent text messages talking about how he needed to kill people. One text message read: “Gonna have to start killing if I don’t get laid soon.” Another message told how his hate and rage were rising and he wanted to shoot people and spray a room with “devil blood”.
New South Wales Police were immediately suspicious of an All Blacks security guard who claimed to have found a bugging device at the team's Sydney hotel. Detective Sergeant Paul Mangan on Thursday told the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney that Adrian Gard was initially treated as a witness but the detective was "suspicious of some of the circumstances".
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".
