The World Sent 65,000 Teddy Bears to Newtown. His Job Was to Keep the Gifts from Overwhelming the Town. The gifts and messages of condolence offered comfort and broke hearts. Chris Kelsey was among those who bore the weight of sorting the outpouring. One week after the massacre, Chris Kelsey got a strange call from a Connecticut state trooper. Kelsey was the town of Newtown’s tax assessor, a big guy with a black goatee and a buzz cut who looks more like a retired linebacker than an accountant.
A Grieving Sandy Hook Father’s Five-Year Battle Against Mass-Shooting Hoaxers Conspiracy theorists say the Newtown massacre was staged. Lenny Pozner has made it his life’s work to protect the honor of his murdered son. A year and a half after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, Lenny Pozner called to set up a meeting with Wolfgang Halbig.
The most pro-gun lawmaker in gun-friendly Texas says Sunday’s mass shooting at a small-town church only reinforces the need to pass a bill that removes any restrictions on the carrying of firearms in the state’s public spaces. “The truth is, I think the shooting proves that an armed society is a safer one,” the lawmaker, state Representative John Stickland, told The Trace. “It proves the need for constitutional carry. It proves the need because criminals and psychopaths do not obey the law.
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".
