SAN FRANCISCO (CN) — A federal judge Thursday refused to lift an injunction blocking part of President Donald Trump’s executive order against sanctuary cities, calling the government’s pledge to cut only limited funds from jurisdictions that won’t help enforce immigration laws an “illusory promise.” As he indicated at a hearing last week, U.S. District Judge William Orrick III found a May 22 memo by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that narrows the scope of funds at stake for “sanctuary...
SAN FRANCISCO (CN) — Property owners on Wednesday dropped their class action against Pokemon, abandoning claims that the Pokemon Go game encouraged players to trespass on private property; only Niantic remains as a defendant. Lead plaintiff Jeffery Marder of New Jersey sued Niantic, Nintendo and Pokemon Co. in Federal Court one year ago. Marder said five people knocked on his door in the first week of the game’s debut in July 2016, asking for permission to “catch” Pokemon in his backyard.
SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – A federal judge on Wednesday refused to dismiss a second shareholder class action against Volkswagen, finding its failure to warn investors about its use of emissions-cheating software in 11 million vehicles was “misleading.”In a May 2014 offering memo to major investors, Volkswagen focused heavily on its development of emissions-reducing technology and the need to comply with government regulations.
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".
