A school janitor who was convicted of raping a lesbian co-worker has failed to convince a state appeals court that his 5- to 10-year prison term is unjust. Instead, the Superior Court panel rejected Steven W. Wesley's claim that a Chester County judge allowed improper testimony during his trial that led the jury to convict him out of fear.
A federal appeals court has rejected a sex trafficker' claim that he was scared into pleading guilty in return for a 30-year prison sentence. His lawyers caused that fright by telling him there was a likelihood he'd receive a life prison term if he was convicted at a trial, Corderro Cody contended. Cody, an Allentown man who goes by the street names "Gator," "Footz" and "Daddy," had his bid for freedom deep-sixed by a recent ruling from a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
About two dozen more animals have been removed from a midstate business that once was the controversial home of Ricki the Bear. The creatures, including llamas, alpacas and emus were taken from Jim Mack's Ice Cream Shop in York County on Saturday, the Animal Legal Defense Fund announced Monday. They said the removals came after the owner of the Hellam Township business was threatened with a lawsuit for breaching an agreement that resulted in Ricki's removal to an animal sanctuary in 2015.
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".
