David Glasser, the ousted chief operating officer of the Weinstein Company, announced that he will be suing the company for $85 million just days after he was abruptly fired from his position.

Glasser is now pursuing a wrongful termination suit, according to his attorney Eve Wagner.

The state of Connecticut has agreed to pay $6.25 million to the estate of a couple killed more than a decade ago when a tree limb fell on their car. Joseph Stavola, a physician, an his attorney wife, Jeanne Serocke-Stavola, died on June 9, 2007, when a 70ft tree fell on their Volvo on the Merritt Parkway in Westport, Connecticut. Their then 9 and 7-year-old sons were in the back seat when the tree came barreling down, the Courant reports.
If my mother, who had to work 3 and even an occasional 4th job just to make ends meet, is then expected to train to shoot a gun and supply her own bullets (because let’s be real, they ain’t going to supply those) that’s a no go!
How can we realistically demand that our educators, who already aren’t valued, be required to put in the man hours to be ‘adequately’ trained for situations like this?
This idea of arming teachers shows a disconnect the govt has with education.
As I got to middle school and eventually high school, my mother took on more cleaning and even took an additional job tutoring at risk students who weren’t attending school whether it be for health issues or behavioral ones.
She still had to pay out of pocket for supplies.
Then as my mother switched schools districts and started serving students in predominantly low income and majority black communities in Missouri, she had to fork up even more money to pay for supplies as these schools were even more under served.
When I was still in elementary school my mom took on a second job as a cleaning lady and we would often spend our nights and weekends cleaning up to 15 buildings. STILL GOING TO SCHOOL AND FINISHING EXTRA CURRICULARS.
Who was right there cleaning with her? Me, of course!
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".
