On July 5, Lavish D announced his return home from prison with an exuberant Instagram video. The Sacramento rapper, born Donald Oliver, sported a large gold ring on his finger and a stack of hundred dollar bills in his hand, meant to mimic a phone, as he imagined a conversation with himself and everybody who could view the video. “You say what bitch? Lavish D out?” he said while smiling. “Oh yeah!
This is an extended version of a story that appeared in the September 7, 2017, issue. Angela Velazquez feels like she should have been better prepared. After all, the 28-year-old Sacramento resident never believed President Donald Trump had softened his stance on undocumented immigrants like her, who were brought to this country as children and later came forward as adults because they trusted the American government—their government—to keep its word.
The Bay Area fugitive who killed Sacramento County sheriff’s Deputy Robert French unloaded 34 rounds from an automatic rifle and blasted nine more shots from a handgun before authorities stopped him last week, sheriff’s officials revealed on Tuesday. And while an autopsy was pending at the time of this report, Sheriff Scott Jones said he believes the shot that may have ended Thomas Daniel Littlecloud’s reign of terror came from the sidearm of the deputy who gave his life to the job.
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".
