The chill of these frigid winter temperatures might have you bitter and blue, but Beach Boys-esque surf rock group Death Birds Surf Club have returned with a new video that will leave you all warm and fuzzy inside. RVA Mag first introduced you to the trio, which includes Crystal Pistol Records‘ Pete Curry, along with Adam Weatherford (Guitar/Vocals) and Ashley “Bean” Weatherford (Bass/Vocals), back in 2016 when the Richmond band dropped their debut album, Transmission of Stoke.
What happened to 26-year-old Daniel Shaver should frighten everyone concerned with the integrity of our criminal justice system. What happened to the former Mesa, Arizona police officer behind his death should frighten us even more. The confrontation police had with Shaver, after responding to calls of a gun poking out of a hotel window, according to USA Today, was essentially sadistic torture that ended in murder. Contrary to what one may say, there is no debate to this.
It’s a daily process, measuring my capacity for whiteness. It’s a self-exercise for a black woman but also determines where I place my energy for the day. While assessing myself and my capacity, I start the morning with the social media scroll before I become engulfed in a toddler routine. As I sip caffeine and review my timeline, I notice rarely a day goes by where I don’t see someone being triggered by conversations about race.
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".
