Among the many feelings stirred up by the current #metoo moment is the guilt associated with the bosses we didn’t report. It seems like just about every woman I know has encountered abuse or harassment in the workplace and has been thinking about the way she handled it at the time. If you didn’t report a former boss, is it worth doing so months or even years after the fact? How do you balance the potential for retaliation with the feeling of obligation to other women?
The nonprofit group ACORN Housing fired two employees from the organization's Southeast Washington office Friday after a video from a hidden camera showed them advising a young couple about how to buy a house to use as a brothel. In the video posted online Friday, Hannah Giles, 20, poses as a prostitute, asking staff members how to get a home loan without tipping off the bank that she wants to use it as a brothel with 10 Salvadoran prostitutes.
Improv Everywhere, the New York City-based "prank collective," describes its mission as "[causing] scenes of chaos and joy in public places." They're probably best known for staging the annual No Pants Subway Ride, in which thousands of people board trains in their underwear. But their latest "prank" involves no chaos at all, just joy. The group set a wooden lectern in bustling Union Square one afternoon and set a megaphone on top.

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".
