SANTA CRUZ >> For a Santa Cruz brain surgeon, Watsonville nurse and Tucson, Arizona mother, each faces a new bail of $15 million, set by a judge Thursday.

SANTA CRUZ >> Despite progress in school and counseling, Adrian “A.J.” Gonzalez has had troubles with his peers — including three fist fights — every day since his arrest in July 2015, according to testimony Thursday in Santa Cruz County Superior Court. A.J. is accused of raping and killing 8-year-old Madyson Middleton in Santa Cruz. The teenager’s behavior was scrutinized during the fifth week of proceedings to determine whether the accused child rapist and killer will be tried as an adult.
SANTA CRUZ – Doctors and therapists will continue to testify through the week on the mental capacity of suspected killer Adrian “A.J.” Gonzalez, 17, and his ability to be tried as an adult or a child. The hearing, before Santa Cruz County Superior Court Judge John Salazar, finished its fourth week Thursday with Dr. Anlee Kuo, a psychiatrist from San Francisco, discussing A.J.’s complex psychological history. That history is dominated by childhood trauma, some witnesses have testified.
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".
