Some fans — even two years on — still were not used to hearing Sterling’s mezzo-soprano voice over the PA system. A 1979 Harvard graduate, Sterling was a singer, a devoted baseball fan, and a freelance sports reporter. After a stint as an executive assistant at Harvard Business School, she — along with more than 100 others — applied for the position of public address announcer for the Red Sox. Sterling got the job,“I personally felt my skin color was less of an issue than my gender," she said.
A pretrial hearing was held this week for James Witkowski, a suspect in the 1992 murder of a 21-year-old Tufts University graduate, Lena Bruce. Until last year, her killing had been classified as a cold case; a mystery the Suffolk County District Attorney says was solved decades later by a computer match of DNA taken from the crime scene and from the suspect decades later. Who was Lena Bruce? And why do her sorority sisters in Delta Sigma Theta think this question is still so important?
When Luciana Micaela Casiano Velez came to the United States from Uruguay with her parents under a visa waiver program, she was 11 years old. Now 27 and a mother of five American children, Casiano Velez is facing deportation by mid-September.

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".
